Ukulele Class Tuesdays, 10–11:30 am Learn to play the ukulele. This class, taught by local musician, Susan Wolf, is an introduction to ukulele playing. Because each learner will have a different starting place, instruction will be part group and part individual. Ukuleles will be provided for in-class use. The objective is to learn music vocabulary, mostly familiar songs. Recreational music is an intriguing and fun activity. This class is an opportunity to get started playing the ukulele, the easiest stringed instrument.
Beginner Ukulele Thursdays, 9:30–10:30 am Led by Susan Wolf, this is meant to complement the regular ukulele class and be a starting point for beginners who can then move on to the Tuesday class, which is an all-levels class.
