Ryk’s Uke Class Registration

Thank you for your interest in learning to play the ukulele, and thank you for your patience while I took a break from teaching uke classes. I’m back and ready to go, and looking forward to strumming and singing with you in the New Year! Here are the details of my current offerings.

Ryk Groetchen, director of the East Bay Community Music Project and Music Together teacher, is offering ukulele and singing classes. These classes are appropriate for adults and tweens/teens, and younger children who want to join at their own pace without expectation and attend with an adult. This Winter there will be two classes—a beginners’ class and an advanced beginners’ class. See below for class times. Fee for either class is $204 for 10 weeks (family rates available). Classes start Saturday, January 18, 2020, so register now!

Beginner Ukulele and Singing
Saturdays 10:00-10:45am
Location South Berkeley Senior Center, 2939 Ellis Street (at Ashby), Berkeley
January 18 – March 21, 2020

Advanced Beginner Ukulele and Singing
Saturdays 11:00-11:45am
Location South Berkeley Senior Center, 2939 Ellis Street (at Ashby), Berkeley
January 18 – March 21, 2020

This is a family-style class, so feel free to bring family members, young and old, who will benefit from community music time, but who may not learn at the same pace as the enrolled class members.

All students should bring a serviceable instrument, a tuner, and a willingness to strum, sing, and move in musical ways.

Advanced beginners should be familiar with the chords C, F, G, and Aminor, and be able to change chords in a steady rhythm.

If you have any questions, or would be interested in joining or helping to recruit families, or would like to receive information about future classes, please contact ryk@ebcmp.org. Please share this announcement with anyone you think will be interested in the class.
