@ Columbia Arts Building, Level 1

Ready to learn a new musical instrument? Learn to play the ukulele! It’s light, portable, and so much fun! In this class, you’ll learn the basics of playing Ukulele. No previous musical experience necessary!

You will learn how to to care for your instrument including tuning and string set up.

This is a 6 week session that builds upon itself every week.  It is open to adults and to teens ages 14+.  The course fee is for lessons only; students will need to bring their own instrument.

  • Where to find an affordable starter instrument? Students can get reasonably priced ukuleles on Amazon or at area music stores for around $50.  Kmise Ukelele kit is a nice all inclusive kit on Amazon.

  • What kind of instrument should I get? Soprano, Tenor, and Concert Ukuleles can be used (tuned GCEA). Concert and tenor sizes have increasingly longer fretboards and makes the instrument more versatile. (Please note, this class is not for Baritone Ukelele as the tuning is different).  

  • Get strings at any local music store, or on Amazon

  • Finally, this is not a requirement but it is highly recommended you purchase the course book we'll be working through: Bert Casey’s Ukulele Primer. You can find it on Amazon or we will have some for you to purchase.

Join this class to learn a truly beautiful skill that you can take with you anywhere you go.
