    Have you ever wanted to learn to play the ukulele, but just didn’t know where to start? Have you ever wanted to play along to your favorite tunes, but didn’t know how? If you answered ‘yes’ to either of these questions, this is the class for you! In this course, students will be introduced to the basics of ukulele performance. Along with developing proficiency in the playing of chords and strumming patterns, students will also learn common chord progressions that are featured in classic rock, folk, and popular music. Students will play along with well-known music hits throughout the decades and develop the skills necessary to create their own accompaniments to songs of their choosing. No experience is necessary. Strum, play, and sing your way to your new favorite pastime. ‘Uke’ can do it!

    Students will be required to provide their own ukelele. For purchasing recommendations, contact the instructor, Melissa Lloyd, at
