Do your survivors a favor and sign up for this class.  Take a look at www.lastthings.net to see what you’ll learn.

Ukulele for Beginners

with Duncan Perry

Calendar Apr 30, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 4 weeks

This little instrument is versatile and a blast to play (with a bit of practice, of course). On it you can knock out folk tunes, rock, samba, blues, pop, country, and classical music, as well as songs grandma knows. The ukulele can go most anywhere with you because it’s small and light weight. Duncan, a multi-instrumentalist who has been playing ukulele for 11 years, will teach you to play familiar music using common chords and basic strumming and picking techniques. You do not need to know how to read music.  However, you must have a playable soprano, concert or tenor size ukulele (no baritones please) and an electronic tuner or tuning app on you iphone or ipad.  If you don’t own a ukulele, please contact the Kittery Adult Education Office for helpful information about buying one. Then grab your uke and get ready for a low-stress, fun musical adventure!
