Join the ukulele revolution and learn how to play the little instrument that’s taking the world by storm. Beginner Ukulele 1 is the perfect introduction to those who’ve never played an instrument before and is designed to get you making music right away!
We will explore: ukuleles and how to take care of them, open strings, C major and C pentatonic scales, strumming technique, patterns, and basic rhythmic concepts, how to read chord charts, tablature, and basic musical notation, C chord family, intro to G and F chord families, singing and playing at the same time.
Note: Tuning basics will be taught in the first session; for all of the following sessions, students should have their instruments tuned and ready for the start of the class.
Instrument information: Soprano, Tenor or Concert ukulele with C6 (AKA reentrant) tuning. We recommend the Kala K-AS soprano ukulele. A clip-on tuner (Snark or similar) is required.
