Ready to learn how to play a musical instrument? The ukulele is like ‘Prozac with strings’ because of it’s power to transform those who play it. Research has revealed that learning to play an instrument not only sharpens thinking skills, but may also slow the aging process! The ukulele is the easiest, least expensive, and most enjoyable instrument anyone can learn to play. Whether you are 10 years old or 99 years young, ‘Uke’ can play! The California 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 and by the end of class have the confidence to join any of the many uke jams that meet locally on a regular basis.
A $20 material fee includes a workbook. The workbook also includes access to a website where you can practice and play-along with the songs you learn as often as you want.
Don't own a ukulele? No problem, just notify the instructor in advance so he can bring one for you to use during the class (with the option to purchase it at the end of the class).
