Research has revealed that learning to play an instrument not only sharpens thinking skills, but may also slow the aging process. The ukulele is one of the easiest, least expensive, and most enjoyable instruments you can learn to play. Whether you are only 10 years old or 99 years young, ?Uke can play! The Central Coast is home to one of the most vibrant communities of ukulele players in the country. You will learn several beginner songs with a patient teacher. The workbook you'll be using reflects my teaching experience over the last 2 years with more than 200 students.
Don't own a ukulele? No problem, just notify Brian in advance and he?ll bring one for you to use during class.

"My daughter (she's 10) and I just completed Brian's workshop at Cuesta College. It was a wonderful experience! We learned very practical fundamental skills and were quickly playing and singing songs well before the course was over. We will definitely take more classes from Brian in the future, and bring the rest of the family along next time!" ~Naomi M.
"Brian Schwartz is a wonderful teacher. He gave us a whole lot of information, he is low key, and the class was a lot of fun. I highly recommend him!" ~ Kathie W.
