Beginner's Ukulele Class

Hey everybody! Do you have a ukulele that needs some attention? Are you interested in learning how to play it? We will be covering the basics in this 4 week Beginner's Ukulele Class. Tune, strum, pick and play your ukulele and learn how to make music with others. Noodle will have time to teach the class as a whole as well as provide individual attention. Learn songs that are fun to play on the ukulele each Saturday in February. The Kids' Class is from 10am -11am, followed by Adult Beginner's from 11am-noon. For the complete series it is $80, or $25 for drop-ins. We'll have you dreaming on Hawaii in no time!

  1. ADM Mahogany Soprano Ukulele Beginner Kit from Bizarkdeal

    I have ALWAYS wanted to learn how to play a ukulele !!!
    I love the rich mahogany wood that this particular one is made from, its called a SOPRANO ukulele...
    This set is SO NICE!
    It comes with a nice fabric case, with a strap and it has a handle.., two pics ad an electric tuner! I never knew they made electric tuners, it makes tuning SO simple now!
    The included a cloth for wiping your ukulele down so you always keep it nice.
    Its has nylon string which are supposed to be easier on your fingers.
    Since we have this beautiful and fun UKULELE all my grandkids want to learn how to play!!!
    I am learning how to play by watching videos and as soon as I feel comfortable sharing a song with you, I will!
    This is a very nice combination set, perfect for a beginner, ( Like me).
