Ukulele for Seniors

$79

with Duncan Perry, MSAD#1 Adult & Community Education

Calendar Aug 4, 2022 at 10 am, runs for 4 weeks
1 additional session on Dec 7, 2022

It's never too late to learn to play a musical instrument -- and besides, it's good for you! And what fun it is to pick up a ukulele and knock out a tune for your grandchildren, or better yet, play along with them. Or how about the thrill of playing for friends and with others? Here's where that journey begins!

Join us for our easy paced, no pressure, fun filled ukulele class! Our seasoned and popular ukulele instructor, Duncan Perry, himself a senior, loves sharing his knowledge of the mighty ukulele and will start you out slowly. He will teach you a handful of chords and some basic strumming patterns and you will leave the class knowing how to play songs you grew up with! No experience playing an instrument is necessary and you don’t have to know how to read music. But you do have to promise to practice regularly!

With 10 chords, a pocket full of strums and a big smile, you'll be a hit! Of course, you'll need a playable ukulele (we are happy to provide information on where to buy one if you don't have one available). So grab a uke, sign up, tune up, show up and bloom on Zoom! (We can help you get acclimated to that too, but you will need a computer or tablet capable of using Zoom).
