UKE CAN DO IT UKULELE LESSONS
3:00 pm – 4:00 pm Repeats
East Bend Library
Due to popular demand, we have added a second series of Uke Can Do It ukulele lessons. This second series will be hosted at the East Bend Library.
Join local ukulele instructor Cinda Johnson for a series of four lessons geared for the beginning ukulele player. The classes are free and open to the public but registration is required as space is limited. Instruments will be provided and participants must be 12 years or older.
Johnson has been teaching ukulele for over ten years. She currently does ukulele therapy for seniors at assisted-living homes, retirement homes and hospice facilities. For more than 30 years, Johnson has shared her passion for teaching, performing, magic and music as a children’s entertainer. During the beginning ukulele classes, people will learn basic strums, chords and a selection of songs. “We will learn how to have fun with this silly little instrument,” says Johnson.
For more information about this or other library programs, please visit the library website at www.deschuteslibrary.org. People with disabilities needing accommodations (alternative formats, seating or auxiliary aides) should contact Liz at 312-1032.
