Term 5: June 14 – July 19 

“Uke” Got This! – CLOSED 

Uke Got This – Wednesdays 5:00 – 5:45 PM 
Offered to Youth, Grades 7-12 

Have you had the itch to pick up guitar, but feel like it might be too difficult?  – Well, fear no more! Join Mrs. Adessa for a fun 6-week “Uke Got This” Ukulele summer session. With a smaller and easy-to-manage instrument like the Ukulele, we’ll show you how to confidently strum, play chords and even accompany yourself on some of your favorite songs! 

Students should come to class with their own ukulele. Many online retailers carry beginner models at an inexpensive rate but not all beginner models are the same. Some suggested brands include, Kala, Luna, and Cordoba. Check out this list for best recommended beginner Ukuleles.
