There is a parkade nearby that charges $6 for the day or plenty of buses and near the Granville skytrain.

The classes are a weekly 90minute session and will leave you smiling and a whole lot smarter!

In this course you will easily learn Ukulele chords, strumming, to read tablature, play melodies, begin to play by ear & sing some fab tunes. This course consolidates the basics of Ukulele playing, and enhances fluidity of playing. A fun start to your Saturday that will easily open the amazing world of Ukulele playing!
Play with other people have fun AND learn!

This level is perfect for you, if you have completed the Beginner I course, or been playing for a little while on your own, and can strum a simple tune fluidly with basic chords (C,F,G7,Am,E7, maybe are still learning to do Bb). You can move from one chord to another with ease, and play a melody reading simple tablature (the easy number system to read a melody line). Read "what level am I?"

You will learn: to play chords associated with the C Major Scale,(and maybe G or F) simple picking patterns, and variety of strum feels. As well as, how to build a major scale, fret board recognition, simple chord progressions, simple chord melody, 2 or 3 part ensemble playing, and a variety of tunes from a repertoire of Jazz, Blues, Country, Classical, Folk & contemporary tunes. There is something for everyone!

We have Ukuleles to borrow during the classtime at the School (FREE) please register for this. This will give you an opportunity to take your time buying a Ukulele. We have Ukuleles for sale, which we are delighted with for their sweet sound and reasonable price. We have start up Ukulele packages available for sale. We also have a resident luthier who is available to fit strap buttons on your Ukulele, change strings or do any repairs or modifications you may require.

All you need for a fun time playing the Ukulele!
