The Strummers Beginner Winter Session builds ukulele beginners’ confidence as they expand their song library!

In this 8-week session, students will extend their technique to better enjoy their music-making. Come and learn common chord progressions through your favorite songs, strumming patterns to spice up your playing, and enjoy playing with other beginning ukulele enthusiasts! This class is for new beginners up through those with little experience.

Classes meet Mondays from January 8th through February 26th at 10:30am in the Community Room at Arizona Musicfest.

No experience, but lots of enthusiasm, required. Students must provide their own instruments. (Concert Soprano or Tenor-size Ukuleles recommended, Baritones welcome!).
