Featured Courses

  • Ukulele

    Beginning: Starting with tuning and holding your ukulele, learn the basics quickly and start playing songs you love right away. Simple chords will have you sounding great after just one class. You’ll soon have a repertoire of popular songs from many genres. Learn how to find ukulele chord charts, strum and sing at the same time, and strum rhythmically with confidence. Continuing: Orchestra: Ukulele players of all levels can enjoy making music together playing different parts as a ukulele orchestra. We'll perform instrumentals and some songs with vocals—from Beatles and 80s classics to well-known tunes such as the theme from the Pink Panther. Whether you enjoy strumming, plucking, soloing, singing, harmonizing or even U-bass, this class will provide fun challenges for continuing players at various levels of experience. Some prior experience strumming basic chords is required; tablature and/or note reading is helpful for more advanced players but not required. We'll cover tablature, plucking, and reading charts and rhythms to play together as a group. Please note: Bring your own ukulele to class each week. A clip-on tuner is recommended but not required.
  • West African Hand Drumming

    Explore djembe, a goblet-shaped drum played with bare hands, in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. Learn techniques to make basic drum sounds—bass, tone and slap—to create rhythms integral to West African culture. All levels are welcome, and no experience is necessary. Please note: A limited number of drums are available to borrow.
