Okay. So you took a beginning ukulele class and now you're itching for more. You know a handful of chords, a couple of strums, a smidgen of theory and, if you feel like it, you can sing and strum at the same time. In this class, you'll learn some new songs, some new strums, and some more helpful theory. Please bring your uke, a music stand, and a tuner. GCEA ukes: low or high G is fine. Baritones are welcome, too (please let the teacher know in advance).

Tackle more challenging chords, keeping a beat while strumming, and making fluid chord changes. Continue building confidence as you learn about song structure, chord families and moveable chords, new strums, and transposing, all while expanding your repertoire by adding a new tune each week!
