Ukulele for Beginners

Known as the friendly or social instrument, the ukulele is easy to learn and fun to play in a group. This weekly group class will get you "jam ready" -- so you can join any number of ukulele meet-ups in and around Boston, giving you the opportunity to practice in social settings. Ideally suited for the complete beginner, you will learn how to hold and tune the ukulele properly, read chord diagrams and song sheets, correctly finger the basic chords and play the strum patterns useful to accompany popular songs.  A variety of ukuleles (new, low and high end) and clip-on tuners are available for loan on the first day (s). You will get tips on how to affordably acquire your own for the rest of the course.  Receive a $10 bill on the first day, if you have already taken Anne's 1.5 hour "Crash Course for Complete Beginners." Special Mother's Day Gift Certificate available for mothers to attend alone or accompanied by daughter or son.  Healthy teas and snacks will be served. This course meets every Saturday except June 1st. Doors open half-hour before. A PDF handout with links to song sheets, video tutorials, and other useful content from the session will be e-mailed to you the next day so you can practice for the next session.Choose the most suitable option. EARLY BIRD: Pay for the entire course upfront. REGULAR: pay for one session and decide later; pay for one session & the rest via Venmo, Zelle, Paypal, Cheque, Cash to avoid fees FREE option to enquire other ways to finance this course. WHAT PREVIOUS PARTICIPANTS HAVE SAID ABOUT THIS COURSE: “Anne Ku’s Beginner Workshop Course was fantastic. I did not have a musical background, nor had ever play the Uke. She has provided me a solid foundation from which to grow. The follow up videos and materials are very helpful for me to practice.” “Anne’s ukulele class was terrific.  As a retiree with no musical background Anne made each class easy to follow.  Anne has such upbeat enthusiasm in class that you can’t help but be motivated and inspired.  I’m so glad I signed up and plan on following her lessons and videos.” “This is the class that you never knew you needed. But when you’ve done it, you’ll realize you should have done it years ago.” “The handout is excellent, and the class was both informative and fun.” Historic Lower Mills is that part of Dorchester that borders Milton. The Walter Baker Building is within sight and walking distance of the Milton T station (which is a short ride on the Mattapan Trolley from Ashmont Station on the Red Line -- you do not pay extra for this ride). Free street parking. Watch this video about this part of Boston: https://youtu.be/NSgAUwHYOa4
