FUN’s (Florida Ukulele Network) Vision & Goals:
We are a ukulele group whose goal is to teach people the “FUN” of playing ukulele.
We welcome all skill levels from beginner to experienced.
If you’d like to learn to play music in a warm, welcoming “FUN” group setting with an easy to learn, very user friendly instrument that is the ukulele, then this group is for you.
Since the start of our group in December of 2009, we’ve been having a great time playing ukuleles together. I’ve noticed how our skills have improved as individual players and as a group. That makes this group “FUN.”
We’ve had some new people come to our meetings but they don’t come back. My concern is that they are not feeling comfortable with their skills or are becoming overwhelmed by how great we play. Maybe we haven’t been working with the beginners in an effective way. I’d like to change that.
Starting on Wednesday, September 29th, we will be changing the format of the group just a little to be more welcoming to the beginners.
Our meetings will start at the regular time: 7:30
From 7:30 to 8:30 we’ll have a lesson for the beginners. Instruction will be based on the Hal Leonard Ukulele Method books 1 and 2 and will include learning about:
The musical staff,
What notes mean and how to read them,
How to interpret and play tab,
Learning to play basic songs.
Experienced chord players who want to learn to play tab are welcomed to join the beginners.
From 8:30 until we end we’ll have our usual open jam. Beginners are welcomed and encouraged to stay. For experience players, I invite you to bring copies of the songs you want to play together, or you can post them on the Files section of our Meetup group website for members to download and print.
As always, PLEASE RSVP if you plan on joining us. This helps me to prepare for you to have a good time.
