Ukulele 101 Bootcamp with Cynthia Lin

Sun, Jan 21 - 1:30 pm

earn a new instrument and hit the ground running!

Want to learn a new instrument this new year? Already have an uke but need a little boost to get started?

Hit the ground running with YouTube sensation Cynthia Lin's Ukulele 101 Bootcamp for Beginners. This 2-hour workshop is ideal for those who have already tried to learn online but need some in-person pointers, or for those who want a push and enjoy a little musical challenge.

Cynthia believes ukulele is best to learn in a group setting, so there's a discount if you bring friends! Details below.

Am I ready for bootcamp?

No pre-requisites, some musical background helpful.

Absolute beginners are welcome, but remember, this is bootcamp! Some familiarity with ukulele (or another musical instrument) will be helpful, as we will move fast. A good attitude and a willingness to try will get you far (in life and in uke!).

What you need:

- Ukulele. Bring your own uke, already tuned up, or arrange with sfukuleleclasses@gmail.com to rent one for the day.

- Song Book. Every ticket purchased includes a digital copy of our Song Book. We also have beautifully designed, bound Song Books that you can purchase for a discounted rate with your ticket or at the event (if we don't run out first!). We'll also project the Song Book onscreen, and you're welcome to bring a music stand to hold your Song Book, printout, or digital device.

The bootcamp:

Show up with time to spare to get settled in before the class starts. Coffee, soft drinks, wine & beer are for sale, and we'll have some merch too.

We'll walk through the basics together first: how to tune, how to hold, how to strum, how to read chord diagrams and chord charts, how to change chords.

Then we'll begin learning to play with Lesson 1: Three Little Birds (see video playlist of all my lessons here), and move through Lessons 2-4 to build up to learning the most important ukulele strum, the Island Strum. The goal is to end the Bootcamp with Lesson
