What we’ll learn

You have learned your ukulele basics—how to hold and tune your instrument and the names of the strings. You can strum in rhythm and play a few chords and songs in more than one key. Yay!!!

Let’s build on that foundation. This workshop is specially formatted to help beginners to the next level. You learn more strum patterns, chords, fancy embellishments, basic fingerpicking and simple finger exercises that improve both your right and left hand technique. The C scale is on the table, along with an introduction to reading tablature. We play (and sing) lots of new songs, revisit others and play at least one tune by ear in each class.

This workshop is a natural follow-up for students in Cali’s Ukulele Beginners PLUS and for you beginners (16 years old and above) who want to deepen your understanding and improve your skills. Then you may be ready to join our intermediate-level OnGoing Ukulele Workshop and Jam at Boulevard Music.

What you’ll need

  • A ukulele with standard G-C-E-A tuning and a tuner

  • Cali will supply the materials for you.


$80 includes all 4 classes.
