The diminutive ukulele, born of a marriage in Hawaii in 1879, is currently in its third wave of worldwide popularity. It's a charming, friendly instrument and ultimately easy to play. But there are treasures hidden in its depths. In this course an aficianado of the ukulele for 50 years and teacher of it for 20, will hold your hand as you learn its parts, its lore, its tuning, and show you how to steer it into the world of harmony, melody, rhythm and song. Written lectures are often backed up with video presentations. And the instructor is available via email. This course is appropriate for absolute beginners, guitar players who wish to migrate to the uke, and accomplished ukulele players looking for new challenges.
