King County Library System online — Ukulele Start-Up for Beginners

June 22 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

 

All ages welcome.
Everybody loves the ukulele – so happy-sounding and easy to carry! – but how do you play it??

Turns out, anyone can go from zero-to-song in one sitting.

Experienced teacher Wes Weddell will start with the basics and introduce some easy chords that fit with familiar songs (digital handouts will be provided). We’ll cover how to hold the uke, tune it, and strum it, as well as what you can do to practice on your own.

Given the limitations of the digital platform, if parents can help younger students arrive in tune (lots of videos on YouTube), or stick around at the beginning to help, that will go a long way toward us getting good use out of the time.
Sponsored by the King County Library System Foundation.

Classes will use Zoom as a platform, and participants will be asked to mute themselves during songs to accommodate Zoom’s limitations processing audio from multiple sources.  

Please register by 10am the day of the event. The Zoom link will be sent to you by email.
