Beginner I: Even if you've never picked up the uke before, Gary will have you playing by the end of the first session. We'll cover tuning, and basic chords and strumming. All skill levels welcome. (Students under 12 welcome with the permission of the instructor)
Beginner II: This class is designed for those who have taken the Beginner I class, or who have been playing for a while and want to focus on fundamentals. We'll pick up where we left off in the Beginner I class and work on building chord repertoire and basic strumming styles.
Let's Jam!: A guided strum circle for experienced players who want to play in an advanced group and learn some tips and tricks along the way. Contact Gary Peare for details.
