The ukulele is a fun and versatile instrument. With many chords requiring only one or two fingers, it's an easy way to accompany yourself while singing. And, it's portable! Beginner students can learn basic accompaniment styles using simple chording along with rudimentary strumming and finger-style techniques. Single-note melody playing will also be covered. More advanced learners will build on what they know, explore chord substitution, clawhammer, chord melodies and working up the neck of the ukulele. Most lessons are taught in G-C-E-A tuning, but other tunings can be accommodated. Repertoire is chosen and modified depending on individual requests and the level of students.
