Uke Camp

Uke Camp is a 4-week introduction to the ukulele presented by Tuesday Ukes. This program is for folks who are 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
  • An Introduction to TABS

And we play songs – by the end of the camp participants are playing two and three chord songs confidently in a group.

We have 10 loaner ukes available for the class, so no uke – no problem!

As a community group we make the Uke Camp and all the materials available at no charge. If you’d like to host a Uke Camp, contact the Tuesday Uke Group at tug_info@tuesdayukes.org.

If you’d like to get an idea what the Uke Camp is about we have the Uke Camp book available for download (below), along with play along videos of the 4 class sessions. There is also a PDF of 2-chord songs, along with a play along video.

Come camp with TUG!
