Prerequisites: Players should be able to play chords in C, F, G and D major and keep a steady beat. Some note reading or tablature experience will be helpful 

This course will introduce students to simple arpeggios and fingerpicking patterns. Some basic music theory will be introduced. Students will have fun learning new chords and strums while concentrating on playing with more speed and flow. As a result of improving these skills, the songs in the sing-a-long segment will be more musically interesting. Students will be required to purchase “Essential Elements for Ukulele Method - Book 2” by Marty Gross, Hal Leonard Publisher, ISBN 978-1-4803-9598-5, available online for under $15.00, and “The Daily Ukulele” by Liz and Jim Beloff, ISBN 978-1-4234-7775-4, price varies.

Instructor: Jan Tapley     Coordinators: Charlotte Lynch and Cynthia Welch
