*New Class* Small Group Ensemble SOLD OUT
This is designed to help small groups (2-4) who are already playing together.  We will focus on the basics: melody, harmony and rhythm as students bring in their own material to tighten for performance.  All ukulele sizes are welcome and this is recommended for intermediate players (and beyond!) Must sign up as a group, contact Kevin before registering.
Tuesdays 6-7 January 26th-March 1

Ukulele in the Classroom Book 1 Session 1 SOLD OUT
This is the best ukulele skill building program out there.  It builds musical literacy and is an intensive 24 week program split between Fall and Spring.  It is hard work as note reading, ensemble skills, scales, melody, rhythm and harmony are all developed.  The musical reward is equal to the challenge.  For the dedicated ukulele player, this class is highly recommended.  Please note that this 12-week session is a continuation of the Winter 2015 class and requires completion of Session 1.
