NEW: Six-week Uke Class for beginners. We will meet on Saturdays from 12:00 to 2:00 pm. September 15th throught October 20th. This new course is aimed at those who are new to the ukulele. This class will include soprano, concert, tenor and baritone ukulele's. Arrangements can be made in advance to purchase a ukulele before the first class if you do not already own one. Roper Music does have ukuleles in stock. Please bring your own uke to these classes. Fees: $10 per week.
Each member will be given a 3-ring binder to store lesson hand-outs at each Saturday class. This course will cover: Common chords & chord progressions plus scales in each of the twelve keys. How to read tablature written for ukulele. Participants will also learn: how to maintain your instrument, new accessories, sound equipment, etc.. Our main focus is the musical side of the ukulele as a unique, viable instrument. Our challenge is to present the ukulele to players (students) and their audiences as a disversified and capable instrument.
Your instructor is Sharon Riggen. Sharon is a professional musician and has performed & taught guitar, uke, and 4/5 string banjos as a lifetime career. She has taught at Roper Music since 1989.
