20 September, 2016 Ukulele


Kids and adults, learn to play the ukulele in a DAY! Don't let that little instrument gather dust — come learn songs to get you started, and the secrets to allow you to play most any pop and folk song. See how fun and easy it can be in this 1-hour class designed to have you up and playing right away. Kids under 8 should be accompanied by a participating grown-up.

Heidi Swedberg   10:30-11:30 am  Saturday, Nov 19 (1 session)   $40


Ukuleles are the ultimate holiday gift — portable, accessible and inexpensive. Here's an idea: once you have one — why not learn how to play it? This kid and family class will show you just what to do with that shiny new instrument! We'll start with simple 2- and 3-chord songs that will have everyone playing in the first lesson. Parents can accompany kids five and up, while kids eight and older are welcome on their own. Even parents are welcome on their own! Got a song you just have to play? Suggest it, and we'll work it out with you!

Heidi Swedberg   10:30-11:30 am  Saturdays, Coming Soon (3 sessions)   $90 (ages 8 & up)  /  $40 (kids under 8)

Play and sing along with Fred on a wide variety of songs (no genre left untapped) including ones YOU suggest. Everyone gets a chance to solo, too, if they want to. Fred will write the changes on the board and help with any mysterious chord shapes. He'll also offer lots of suggestions on how to take your backup and your soloing to the next level (play all over the fretboard & learn soloing strategies). We'll play blues, classic rock, Tin Pan Alley, country, swing, bluegrass, you name it.

Here's the next step after Beginning Uke, a class covering both chords and strumming in greater depth. Squeeze more music out of that little instrument, and learn some new songs while you're at it. This course will strengthen your skills and prepare you for Steve's Continuing Uke class. If you have not yet taken Steve's Uke 1 class, please contact him before signing up (ukerocker@gmail.com or [310] 890-4017).
