Here's where thatjourney begins! Join us for our easy-paced, no-pressure, fun-filled ukulele class! Our seasoned andpopular ukulele instructor, Duncan Perry, himself a senior, loves sharing his knowledge of themighty ukulele and will start you out slowly. He will teach you a handful of chords and some basicstrumming patterns and you will leave the class knowing how to play songs you grew up with! Noexperience playing an instrument is necessary and you don’t have to know how to read music. Butyou do have to promise to practice regularly! Of course, you will need a playable ukulele and atuner or tuner app. If you don’t have one available, please contact us for helpful information aboutbuying one. So grab a uke, sign up, tune up, show up and bloom on Zoom! (We can help you getacclimated to Zoom too, but you will need a computer or tablet capable of receiving Zoom). 2 sessions $39
