Calling all wannabe ukulele players – there’s a group strumming this summer downtown at the Music Center.
The Ukule-Along is a get-together for amateur musicians, beginner to intermediate level, that has dozens of people sittin’ and strummin’ alongside one another in a variety of ukulele classes at the Music Center. Designed for uke players 18 years and above, the group meets Saturdays, 10:30 am – 1 pm once a month this summer, July 5, August 2nd, and September 13th. “Beginner” is qualified as “the ability to strum in rhythm while playing these five chords in this order: C, Em, F, D7 and G7.”
Online registration is required prior to June 30th. Participants must bring their own ukulele and a music stand. Registration is $10 per session or $25 for all three sessions – you can join in one or all, and improve your chords, fingerpicking and learn some drills.
