Ukeulele Classes:Live Online for Adults 
​Level 1:

​Four-week Level 1 classes are for folks who have never played the ukulele or who want a refresher of the basics. It's light-hearted and fun, and we cover how to hold the uke, strum it, form chords, and play songs. You don't have to have any musical experience for this class - just a song in your heart and eagerness to learn. After each class, I will email a class recap. (NOTE to baritone uke players: We don’t cover baritone chords in this class.) This class is online and live using Zoom, so there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and get help. Geared for adults ages 18+.
Cost: $35.00 If more than 1 person will be taking the class from your location, please add $15 per extra person.
