Have you always wished you could play “Over the Rainbow” like great Hawaiian musician Iz Kamakawiwoʻole? Well, this summer you can get started with free ukulele lessons at the Millbrae Library!

On the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month through August at 6:30 PM, teacher Elaine will lead beginners, pre-Teen and older, step-by-step through chord sequences used in many popular songs. Bring your ukulele or borrow one for in-class use only. The Millbrae Library also has a limited number of ukuleles available for check out!

If you already know basic uke chords, you can attend the Intermediate sessions on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month through August at 6:30 PM. Bring your ukulele to work on the continuation of your skills including strumming and chord progressions by learning popular songs.

Here’s a sampling of available library materials for beginner uke players:

 

 

 

Learning to play the uke in a group is fun, social and a great way to de-stress. No-need to sign-up, just come and play with us next Wednesday!

As they say in  Hawaii, "A hui hou" - see you soon!
