Ukulele For Beginners

with Duncan Perry



only 5 seats left

The magical ukulele is capturing hearts and minds in Maine and around the world! Why not yours? Come join our adult beginners’ series and share in the fun of learning to play. The ukulele is versatile and a blast to play (with a bit of regular practice, of course). On it you can knock out folk music, rock, blues, jazz, pop, country, tunes grandma knows -- even classical music. In Part 1 of the course, Duncan Perry, who has taught more than 400 students of all ages, will introduce you to essential chords and strumming techniques using familiar songs -- truly a fun way to learn ukulele. Oh, and there are lots of laughs along the way. And here’s a bonus! You do not need to know how to read music! However, you must have a playable soprano, concert, or tenor ukulele and an electronic tuner or a tuner app on your cell phone or tablet. Ukes are affordable and compact and you can take them most anywhere. And when folks hear you play this happy instrument, well, they just have to smile! If you don’t own a ukulele, please contact the Portland Adult Education Office for helpful information on buying a ukulele. So grab a uke and get ready for a low-stress, fun musical adventure, then spread the joy!
