ANNOUNCING BEGINNER UKULELE LESSONS for children in grades 2-5 starting in February. The ukulele is small, light and with only four strings is a perfect first instrument for young children. What could be better than your little one strumming and singing such classic tunes as “You are my sunshine” and “Happy Birthday” after just a few lessons? With this program your child can experience the world of musicianship in a friendly and fun environment.
Instructor Leslie Ross-Degnan, is an experienced early childhood teacher with a master’s in education from Wheelock College, who has always loved singing and playing music with children. Her motto is: “You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy a ukulele and that’s pretty close.” She loves playing ukulele with the Newton City Hall Strummers and continues her studies at Rob’s Guitar School in Newton. Leslie looks forward to sharing her ukulele euphoria with young students.
Registration is now open for beginner classes for Grades 2 – 5, Tuesdays, February 25 – May 5, 1:30 – 2:15 pm, at The Centre at 1294 located at 1294 Centre Street, Newton Centre. No previous music experience required. Sign up here https://newtonma.myrec.com/info/activities/program_details.aspx?ProgramID=29993
