INTRODUCTION TO THE UKULELE FOR SENIORS - WE'LL TAKE IT SLOW AND EASY!

It is never too late to learn to play a musical instrument -- and, besides, it's good for you! And what fun it is to pick up a ukulele and knock out a tune for your grandchildren, or better yet, play along with them. Or how about the thrill of playing for friends and with others? Here's where that journey begins! Join us for our easy-paced, no-pressure, fun-filled ukulele class! Our seasoned and popular ukulele instructor, Duncan Perry, himself a senior, loves sharing his knowledge of the mighty ukulele and will start you out slowly. He will teach you a handful of chords and some basic strumming patterns and you will leave the class knowing how to play songs you grew up with! No experience playing an instrument is necessary and you don’t have to know how to read music. But you do have to promise to practice regularly! Of course, you will need a playable ukulele (we are happy to provide information on where to buy one if you don't have one available). So grab a uke, sign up, tune up, show up and bloom on Zoom! (We can help you get acclimated to Zoom too, but you will need a computer or tablet capable of receiving Zoom)

If you don’t own a ukulele, please contact your instructor, Duncan Perry, at (uketime24@gmail.com) for guidance about buying one.

About Your Instructor:

Duncan is an experienced multi-instrumentalist who has been performing and teaching folks how play the ukulele for the last 13 years. Having served as a volunteer music therapist in medical and hospice settings, he quickly came to understand that music is medicine and that learning to play an instrument not only sharpens the brain but helps reduce stress. It also brings joy to the ukulele player and to her or his audience. Duncan has taught in a variety of Maine communities and has not let the COVID-19 epidemic stop him. He simply moved from teaching in person to teaching online, which has proven to be a popular format enabling him to spread the joy of ukulele across the state.
