UKULELE FOR NOVICES: BUILDING A REPERTOIRE OF SONGS With David Licastro
September 20 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 3:30 pm on Wednesday, repeating until September 27, 2023
Requested donation: $40 for the four session class
Do you have some basic experience playing ukulele and want to learn more? Or perhaps you’ve put your uke down and want to get started again? This class is for people who have a basic knowledge of uke playing–how to hold and tune your instrument, play some basic chords, and know how to play along with some easy songs. It’s also for people of any experience who want to play along with a group. This class will keep you motivated and engage you in the fun of playing songs with a group of players. In each session we will do skill building with a special focus on playing songs.
It’s highly recommended to buy The Daily Ukulele book ($30 from Amazon). Also bring a music stand, ukulele, and tuner (if you have one).
