TUG will be hosting a Uke Camp at the Lamar Senior Activity Center in September. This is a 4-week program for Seniors (50+) new to the uke or wondering if the uke is something for them (the answer is yes!). We cover the basics:
- Parts of the ukulele
- How to hold the ukulele
- Fingering chords
- How to learn new chords
- Simple strumming
- How to make more complex strums
- How to learn a song on the uke
- Strumming and singing
- Reading TABS
And we play songs – but the end of the camp you’ll be playing two and three chord songs confidently in a group.
We’ll have 10 loaner ukes available for the camp, and TUG has donated 5 ukuleles to the center so there will be ukuleles available outside of class for folks to practice and play. So no uke – no problem!
If you’d like to see what we’ll cover in camp you can download our Uke Camp Book. All class participants will get a printed copy at the first camp meeting.
Our Lamar Senior Activity Center camp will meet Thursday mornings from 10:00 am-11:oo am – September 12 – October 3. Participants will need to be a member of (or join) the Lamar Senior Activity Center (Free!). Contact the Lamar Senior Activity Center for more information on registering for the Uke Camp.
