    If you are looking for an instrument that is portable and easy to play as well as a group of people to play and sing your favourite songs with, then this is the course for you! This class will guide you, from the very beginning, through the essential techniques needed to make music on this wonderful instrument, including how to hold a ukulele, tuning, strumming, chords, reading TAB, finger picking, and learning to play in an ensemble. You will play songs from the very first class and have a lot of FUN along the way.   

    Participants will need their own soprano, concert, or tenor ukulele.  The class will use the method book:  Essential Elements for Ukulele, (Hal Leonard) as well as supplementary materials provided by the instructor.

    Students will be introduced to classic Klezmer grooves, as well music from other folk traditions from around Europe. Playing these tunes, students will learn traditional ornamentation and accompaniment styles, as well as ways to break the mold and try new things. Klez-mish will focus on interpersonal musical skills such as arranging tunes from scratch, improvising melodies and harmonies, and creating music as a mixed ensemble.
