A 4 week introductory course to learn the basics of playing the ukulele- simply for fun!
We will play and sing-along with some simple chords and strumming patterns.
A few more challenging chords and songs will be available to those who want to extend their skills later.
No prior experience required.
A ukulele will be essential but Yvonne has a couple spare for those wishing to just try first.
If you wish to buy your own instrument, people should buy from a reputable music store. Mahalo is a good brand and retails around $33 in a wide variety of colours. Fosters Music in Burnie will sell you one for $30 if you say you are with the U3A group. The Mahala Dolphin is a highly recommended beginner’s model also. Retails approx $50 and produces a good sound
Other prices are available for more for fancy designs.
Barretts Music in Launceston also sell similar models.
Be wary of cheaper models as often the tuning is not accurate or stable.
The class will be using the tuning of G-C-E-A
$2 charge to cover venue costs
