The Center offers three levels of ukulele instruction for anyone looking to learn how to play or sharpen their uke skills!
Beginner Ukulele Class
Never played the ukulele but want to learn? This class is for you!
In this skills-based course, students will learn basic strums and chords by focusing on a new song each week. Students may remain in this group until they feel confident to move on to General Ukulele.
General Ukulele Class
This class is for anyone who already plays the ukulele. The focus of this activity-based class will be on learning new songs and talking about different ways to interpret and perform them. This class will provide students an opportunity to expand their ukulele repertoire.
Students may remain in this class until they feel confident to move on to Advanced Ukulele.
Advanced Ukulele Class
The advanced class is not being offered at this time. Please check back later.
This class is for ukulele musicians who want to delve deeper into music theory. The focus of this class will be on learning a song each week and challenging students to find new and more interesting ways to play it using alternate fingerings, strums, and chord melody.
Classes recommended for ages 14 and up.
Ukuleles will be available to borrow for these classes. If you would like to bring your own, please make sure it is a soprano, concert, or tenor uke tuned gCEA.
*Special thanks to Sam Ash Music store for loaning each student a ukulele. Students will also enjoy a 15% discount if they choose to purchase their ukulele when the class has concluded.
