Class Description: Any skill level is welcome. We will cover all techniques, from beginning to advanced. Ukulele is easier to learn than the guitar. We will learn right hand/left hand technique, fingering, chords, songs, song structure, tuning, and strumming techniques. We will earn styles of folk, country, blues, and rock, but our emphasis will be on praise and worship music and hymns. We will learn music appreciation for all styles, but by practicing the praise and worship music all week, I want to expose them to uplifting praise songs to help keep their minds on Christ all week.
