Join us for a half day session or for the full day and get yourself up-to-speed with the ukulele! Register for the morning or afternoon session, or spend the whole day with Ben for a package price. Loaner instruments are available for those who are interested but don’t yet have their own ukulele.

3-Hour Ukulele Workshop for Beginners

The morning session will begin with “Ukulele 1-2-3”. Participants will learn the basics of the uke including the parts of the instrument, tuning, beginning chords, and simple songs. Next, learn to play every song ever written (well, 90% of them, anyway) with four fantastic chords and find out how to switch keys easily.

3-Hour Ukulele Strum Workshop for Confident Beginners

"Become One with the Strum" and learn to play a variety of strums including folk, calypso, rock, polka, ska, and reggae along with the incredibly versatile "Benstrum" using some of your favorite songs. Then, during “Strike a Chord,” you'll take your playing to another level by learning to play chords in various ways including moveable/barre chords, power chords, and “James Hill” chords. Great for players who want to differentiate their sound when playing with others.
