The Level 1 Ukulele Class is for folks who have never played the ukulele or who want a refresher of the basics. It's light-hearted and fun, and we cover how to hold the uke, strum it, form chords (Am, C, D, Em, F, G & G7), and play songs. You don't have to have any musical experience for this class - just a song in your heart and eagerness to learn. After each class, I will email a class recap. (NOTE to baritone uke players: We don't cover baritone chords in this class.) This class will be offered by Zoom
