Get started with the ukulele by learning basic chords and strums at a pace designed for first-time players.
Location: Lincoln Square - Lincoln Ave Campus
The ukulele is a beloved instrument across genres and musical traditions, and it's easy to see why. It's versatile, sounds great whether you're playing by yourself or in a group, and it's very beginner-friendly. In fact, `ukulele is the instrument of choice for many classroom music teachers because of how fun and accessible it is for students of any ability level. Classes at the Old Town School teach the fundamentals through songs ranging from traditional Hawaiian songs to Tin Pan Alley to the contemporary uke styles found in folk, rock, and pop music.
