Stillwater Music offers this group for adult & youth ukulele players ages 10 & up who have little or no experience in a group setting. Focus is on learning to play a variety of music selections in a band setting to develop a performance song set to include group vocal singing. Songs are chosen that are of interest to students and appropriate for students' experience level. Students are required to own an instrument. Special ukulele purchase options are available by contacting Denise Leslie at 970-903-6417.
Beginners who have not previously played ukulele may join this class but MUST also register for the Beginning Ukulele Group Lesson, which takes place during the 30 minutes immediately prior to the ukulele band class (see class listing above).
