This is a fun way to share the aloha spirit of the ukulele together as an ohana (family in Hawaiian). Taught by Michigan’s Ukulele Ambassador, Ben Hassenger, and co-sponsored by the Music is the Foundation non-profit; you will learn a brief history of the instrument and all the basics you need to get started playing right away, including:
• How to hold the ukulele
• Tuning the ukulele
• One-, two-, and three- finger chords
• Transitions between chords
• Strumming patterns
• Easy, fun songs
Loaner ukuleles will be provided and materials (bring a three-ring binder to keep your lesson materials and song sheets organized).
These lessons are sponsored by Music is the Foundation.
