Parents and caregivers learn to play the baritone ukulele while your little one engages in the music-making with percussion instruments, singing, a musical activity, or strumming along. Structured like a Wiggleworms class, this 45 minute class teaches grownups to play ukulele. Through this class, you’ll always collect a variety of tunes to share before bed, around the campfire, at your child’s preschool, and beyond! This is an amazing opportunity for parents to show little ones how to care for and learn to play an instrument. Children are encouraged to bring along their own ukuleles to strum!

The baritone ukulele is a wonderfully accessible instrument to have in the home—and a perfect place to begin your musical journey on a stringed instrument. The baritone chords translate directly to the 6-string guitar. You will leave the first class playing a song and throughout the class you will grow the list of joyful songs you can share with your family and friends.

Here’s what folks are saying:
“We love this class! I went from playing exactly zero songs on a string instrument to more than I can count. It's very satisfying for me to play with my son at home and my husband who already knows how to play many instruments. This class is more for me than my son but he LOVES it too. What a rewarding class!”

“Being able to learn an instrument while my toddler has a good time and is entertained is fantastic. I really needed something that had education for me as well, and this class fits the bill perfectly.”


No experience necessary.
