Have you always wanted to learn to play a new instrument, but you felt overwhelmed and uncertain about how to get started? Believe it or not, the ukulele is the perfect instrument to learn for the first time, at any age. This introductory uke class, led by Kaileigh Anne Tayek, Director of the Schools of Arts & Health at Central Florida Community Arts (CFCArts), provides an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of both ukulele – such as tuning, hand positions, chord fingertips, and strumming patterns – and reading music. Best of all, you’ll learn to play in a relaxed and encouraging atmosphere. Ukuleles will be provided for this lesson, so just bring yourself and your willingness to learn a new skill!
