The ukulele is an amazing instrument that can take you as deep as you’d like to go into music, but with its small frame and only four strings, it is incredibly accessible for beginners who want to start strumming and singing along right away! In only a short time, learn the basics of playing, and how to progress on your own. Get started with Glastonbury’s own Jim Rosokoff a.k.a. Doctor Uke!
No previous experience is necessary. Instruments are provided, but feel free to bring your own if you have one.
Registration begins March 28, online or by calling the library’s Reference Department at 860-652-7720.
