YOU TO CAN UKE: UKULELE 101 FOR TEACHING ARTISTS

August 2 – August 5, 10 AM- 10:45 AM, daily via Zoom

Are you not a musician but have always wished that you could pick up an instrument to add just one more enjoyable way to share art with students? 

Are you a musician but haven’t bothered to learn ukulele yet? 

Come learn ukulele! 

Join teaching artist and musician Joanie Calem and Art Possible Ohio for a week of daily 45-minute lessons in August. We will learn (at least) 4 chords that will allow you to play nearly every popular song that you or your students know. Ukulele is a simple instrument to learn and a (relatively) inexpensive instrument to buy. 

What you need: 

For this class, you can get either a soprano (the smallest with the highest tones), a concert, or a tenor ukulele. These three instruments are all tuned the same way, and we will be able to play beautiful music together (on Zoom 😊). For reference, see image below.

Here is a good article to read about the differences between the sizes: https://www.musicgoround.com/locations/elk-grove/ukulele-buying-guide

If you are interested in the smallest, a soprano uke, here are some options (any of these will be good except I would stay away from the plastic ones: https://www.musiciansfriend.com/search?typeAheadSuggestion=true&typeAheadRedirect=true&sB=r&fromRecentHistory=false&Ntt=soprano+ukes

If you are interested in the middle uke, a concert size uke, here are some options:https://www.sweetwater.com/c1053–Concert_Ukuleles
