Ukulele is quickly becoming one of the most popular instruments among school-aged children! This introductory class will build on prior knowledge from your child’s school music program with activities that begin them on the path of true comprehensive musicianship, providing them with the skills and knowledge necessary to begin pursuing a lifetime of performing, improvising, composing, and ornamenting music. Ukulele also serves as an excellent primer for pursuit of other members of the String family later in life.
