Group Ukulele Class (for Kids, Teens & Adults)
Ukulele is a fun and engaging instrument - it's portable, fairly inexpensive, great for playing popular music, and fun to sing along with. It's also a great primer for learning other stringed instruments. Whether you're a beginner or already have a little experience, come join our friendly group classes!
- Ready, Set, Uke (ages 6-12)
- Ukulele Club (ages 8-12 or by permission of instructor)
- Group Ukulele, Levels 1 and 2 (teens & adults)
Ready, Set, Uke (Ages 6-12)
Got uke? Here's a class to help you play ukulele in a fun group setting. We'll learn a few songs that are great for beginners. Through musical games, movement, and singing, we'll develop our musicianship skills together. This is also a good refresher class if you already have a little bit of uke experience. It's a great stepping stone to joining the WCMS Ukulele Club.
Students should come to the first class with their own Ukulele. Suggested entry level brands available locally include:
- Makala Ukuleles (we like the dolphin model)
- Mahalo Ukuleles (the rainbow model is a good value)
- Check out our music resource page for local music suppliers and service providers

Group Ukulele (Ages 13-adult)
Don't let the kids have all the fun...teens and adults can learn to play Uke too! Join us to learn how to play ukulele in a social group setting. In Level 1, we'll teach you the basics you need to know to get going on this popular instrument. You'll come away with having a few songs under your fingers and the ability to figure out more tunes on your own. Students should come to the first class with their own Ukulele - see suggested recommended brands above (under Ready, Set, Uke).
Join us for Level 2, and we'll continue to build more repertoire and work on strumming patterns. Choose any 8-week section that fits your schedule, and continue as desired. Open to students who have taken Level 1 or have some previous experience with ukulele.
