Ukulele class in Charlotte

Ukulele Crash Course
Saturdays, January 14th and Jan. 21st  
10 AM – 12 NOON, $45.00  
You will learn basic chords, strumming patterns and how to transpose any song into a ukulele friendly key.  You'll have fun making music with others. The cost includes an instruction/songbook.  The class will be held at my home (7107 Valley Haven Drive, Charlotte, 29211) and is open to age 14 and up.  For an additional $55.00 I will supply a nice sounding Lanikai soprano ukulele.  If you want to give the ukulele and class as a gift, you can pick up the ukulele from me in December.  Send me an email to register.

Jan. 15th

Great class today! You may be feeling a little overwhelmed with so much information crammed into such a short time.  Don't worry.  It will get easier with practice.  A little practice each day is more effective than a long practice once a week.  Find a place that you can leave your ukulele and book out so that you can pick it up anytime you have a few minutes to spare.  When I was a kid, we kept the ukulele on top of the piano.

Here are recordings of some of the songs if you'd like to sing and play along and a link to help you tune your ukulele.  Don't forget, "My Dog Has Fleas".

"You Are My Sunshine"

Ukulele crash course

The January 2011 class is full.  I will offer another class in the spring and probably a refresher/practice class for those who already play.  Let me know if you would like to be added to my email list to be notified of these and other classes.  You can also just check back here for updates.
