UKULELE CLASS with SARAH PERRY! for ages 9 and up. 8 sessions on Thursdays, Oct. 20- Dec 15, 2:00- 3:30 p.m. $160

AT our UKULELE CAMP this summer . . . campers begged to borrow ukuleles overnight so they could practice at home, they asked to learn new songs we hadn't even thought of, and excitedly wrote down chords and played together throughout the day (even at lunch and free time) for the joy of it and because they wanted to. We are delighted to keep that musical enthusiasm alive and growing with this class taught by Sarah Perry! 

This class will focus on teaching basic chords, strumming, chord notation and ukulele terminology. Students will learn songs we can play and sing together and will also be encouraged to seek out new songs they want to learn independently. Learning to play a musical instrument is extremely empowering and I have kept this class size small so that I can give each student the attention they need to expand their confidence and abilities. I know the joy of being able to play and sing my favorite songs and helping kids experience that powerful feeling is my greatest goal in teaching music! 

SARAH PERRY is a songwriter and a musician and our intern at Clapping Hands Farm! We are extremely excited that she is continuing to work with us this Fall! Sarah worked at ALL our camps this summer --- she helped campers form a band, write original songs, learn to jam together, create their own musical, and learn to play the ukulele. As an experienced ukulele player, she provided excellent leadership for our Ukulele camp; she worked wonderfully with kids of various skill levels, teaching, enouraging, and performing with them.

WHERE: Clapping Hands Farm! We will meet outside when it is warm enough and inside if it's cold.
