Ukulele Mania and You!
with Duncan Perry
Have you heard? The UKULELE is hot! Here’s your chance to learn how to play it. This little, lightweight, go anywhere instrument is both verSatile and a blast to play (assuming you practice, of course). On it, you can knock out folk tunes, rock, jazz, blues, pop, country, and classical music, as well as songs grandma knows. The classes are meant for folks with no musical background, but, by the time you have finished the course you will have a skill set enabling you to know how to form essential chords and perform basic strumming and fingerpicking techniques and you will learn how to develop your own playing style. The course is taught based on using familiar songs, so you do not need to know how to read music. However, you must have a playable soprano, concert or tenor size ukulele(no baritones please) and either an electronic tuner (recommended) or cell phone tuner app. So, grab your uke and get ready for a musical adventure! Duncan Perry, our seasoned instructor, is a multi-instrumentalist who has been playing ukulele for 12 years. He is a popular and experienced teacher and performer with a passion for the ukulele.
