UKULELE 101 – Class Limit 18 by Cy Sineath
No Special Requirements
The ukulele has aptly been called the “funnest instrument on earth.” And that is what this class is all about… FUN. No prior musical experience is necessary, and please, no music theory. Each week, the class will learn new chords, songs, and strumming patterns that build on the week before. The uke is so “user friendly,” you’ll be playing songs after the first class. By the end of the course, participants will be able to play hundreds of songs and confidently strum along with ukulele groups wherever they are found. Singing and laughing are integral to this course! Requirements: A ukulele (standard tuning GCEA) and a willingness to sing and laugh with the group! The facilitator has a limited number of ukuleles that may be loaned until participants obtain their own.
Cy Sineath has been playing the ukulele for 8 years and has enjoyed playing socially with groups throughout the southeast as well as Dublin, Ireland and London, England. Prior to moving to Blairsville in 2017, he played regularly with two groups in the Atlanta area. He feels the ukulele is much like the game of Bridge; you can learn the basics in a matter of hours and then spend the rest of your life mastering it. He now lives here in the mountains with his wife, Jo, and Otis, the wonder dog.
