Temple Terrace Library - Intro to Ukulele - Strum & Sing Jam

Needs a location

Tampa Bay Ukulele Society (TBUS) Hosts Introductory Ukulele Strum & Sing Jam at the Temple Terrace Library.

Beginners will learn about ukuleles...the different sizes, how to hold, tune, strum, and play a few chords. We will then strum and sing a group of easy 2 to 5 chord songs to reinforce the chord changes and build new player skills. After an intro to ukuleles for new players we will teach new chords as they are included in our songs. Advanced beginners and intermediate players are welcome to join the fun.

If you have a ukulele please bring it. TBUS will have a limited number of ukuleles available at the workshop. (subject to availability).

TBUS will give you information on other TBUS events, and online resources. You will meet other ukulele enthusiasts.

See you there
