There is much more to the ukulele than singing and strumming. The ukulele is capable of playing melodies and even playing instrumental solos. Come dip your fingers into beginner melody playing, or advance your current technique.

This class welcomes brand new players and established strummers – all are welcome.

What will we cover?

In this hands-on class you will:

  • Learn how to read TABs – the written shorthand that is much easier to learn than sheet music.
  • Learn to play simple melodies.
  • Learn how to tune the ukulele.
  • Play along with the class – putting lessons into
