I am happy to announce the Mid-Winter Series of Ukulele Lessons for Beginners, starting 28 July. The course is designed for people who would like to play the ukulele but don’t know where to start. This easy paced program consists of 4 lessons which will give you all the basics – how to tune the strings, most frequently used chords, strumming techniques and how to play a variety of songs. The 1½ hour lessons are sequential, so there will need to be some commitment to attend all four lessons.
By the end of the course you should be able to confidently play about 20 chords and dozens of songs.
The course is led by Michael Rosenberg, a qualified teacher with many years of guitar and ukulele experience. He is co-organiser of Ukuleles Canberra and URoC (Ukulele Republic of Canberra) and had taught ukulele to over 550 students over the last three and a half years.
The lessons will be held on Monday evenings, from 7:00 – 8:30 at the Italo Club, Forrest. The dates are:
July 28, August 4, 11 & 18
The cost per lesson is $16 (covers room hire, notes & tuition) and, if you wish, an upfront payment for all 4 lessons is $60.
Please make sure you RSVP on the club website to ensure a place for yourself as the class size is limited to 15 participants.
It is preferable to have your own ukulele, but if you don’t, please contact Michael before the course begins on[masked] 958.
Hope to see you there.
