Ukulele

BEGINNER PLUS – Sometimes called the world’s friendliest instrument, the ukulele has a happy, joyful tone that makes it a delight to play. In this course, you will refresh skills learned in the beginner class; posture, tuning, foundatinal chords, and strumming. The materials will prepare you for joining the intermediate level later in the season. Registration is ongoing and fees are adjusted based on start date. More information gretchena@mnjcc.org

INTERMEDIATE – Take your uke to the next level! If you’ve taken our beginners’ class (or have previous playing experience) this course will provide you with new music genres as well as improve your skills and techniques. In no time at all you will learn new chords, read TAB, fingerpick, and even work on basic improvisation! Registration is ongoing and fees are adjusted based on start date.
