Have you always wanted to play an instrument? Join Cindy Miller, director of the Unlikely Strummers for six weeks of fun and learn the fundamentals to start your musical journey on the UKULELE. No prior musical experience is necessary.
Learn basic chords, rhythms, and strums that will enable you to play songs in no time! Bring your own soprano, concert, or tenor ukulele and music stand. An electronic tuning device such as a Snark Tuner is also recommended. (Note: This program is geared towards soprano, concert, and tenor ukes only because the tuning for baritone ukulele is different and therefore the chords will be different.)
This class is recommended for ages 16+ and is offered for six weeks on the dates below.
If you have any questions about this course or to obtain a recommendation on a ukulele, contact Cindy at Cynthia_Miller@emerson.edu.
