Class Description

Have you been playing ukulele for a while and find yourself ready for a new challenge? Are you looking for a group class to provide structure and accountability for your learning … or just more fun playing? Sing & Strum is a mixed level class for anyone beyond basic beginner skills. Each term, we learn songs from a different genre or category of music, so you can take it as many times as you like! You will continue to expand your repertoire of chords and strum patterns, and tackle new challenges as you’re ready, including fingerpicking and other techniques.

This FREE demo will introduce you to the basic class format, the instructor, and some tunes from this term’s theme: The Beatles.

If it feels like a good fit, you’ll be invited to join us for the weekly class beginning January 24. Click here for full weekly class details.

NOTE:

Materials for this class are prepared for soprano, concert, and tenor ukuleles. If you are a baritone ukulele player, please bring your own chord charts, or let me know if I can provide one for you.

Free Demo Classes September 9 & 10

With the opening of a new location and the start of a new class, Song by SongTM is letting you try something new:

Ukulele 1 (offered East & West) is for the absolute beginner. I’m talking no music experience necessary, you don’t have to know what a note is or a chord or even what your favorite song is (because I’ll teach you some!). Come on by: September 10 – 1:30pm – West Hills UU Fellowship, 8470 SW Oleson Rd, Portland, Oregon. We’ll have ukuleles available for you to try out, songs ready to go, all you need is some curiosity and a smile. Let us know you’re coming by registering here.

Intro to Ukulele Ensemble is for all ages of folks who are up for a challenge. Maybe you’re still relatively new to the ukulele, but you’re not really into the sing + strum thing. You’d prefer to let your uke do the singing (think Jake Shimabukuro). Or maybe you love the sing + strum thing, but you want to expand your skill set as you play and sing (think James Hill). Either way, this class is going to make you a better player and a better musician all around.The free demo of this class is Saturday, September 9 – 12:00noon – Artichoke Music, 2007 SE Powell Blvd. in SE Portland. Curious? Let us know you’re coming by registering here.
