2019 Summer Music Camp: Beginning Ukulele for Kids, ages 8-14 (10-noon)


For this Beginning Ukulele Camp, the recommended age is 8-14(please call for exceptions). We will assemble the “class” based on age group(try to keep them within 2 years of each other). Once a session(week long) is full, we will post it at the bottom of the page under the “please note”.

We will start with the anatomy of the instrument, tuning, basic chords, teach the students how to read basic rhythms and tabs, and then get kids strumming and playing fun and easy songs from classic to current day.  This week long camp not only builds their confidence, self-discipline, and self-esteem, but will bring them much joy to play music with others and also just for themselvesl

Kids will learn songs by artists such as Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Beatles, Greenday, Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift and some other “Classic” favorites to demonstrate the many techniques, riffs, chords, and to learn various strum patterns. It is important to try to learn from all styles and genres of music, from folk to rock to pop music. This camp is a great way to expose the children to a wide variety of music.

Learning music on the uke is a great way to learn songs, develop basic music skills(counting, keeping tempo, etc) also jamming with others. There will be a mini performance at the end of each week. Super fun! 

These are small group classes.  We cap them at 8 students per class.  This allows for high quality instruction from our experienced faculty.  Class needs at least 4 students to occur.

This week-long camp runs everyday, Monday thru Friday from June 17- August 30th, 10am-noon

The cost is $199 per week. Please call, text, or email to schedule your desired week(s) and to check availability.

Please Note: No camps during week of July 1-5(Happy 4th!)
