Here is a fun session with Amy's performance class, The Kukuleles.
Discover the fun of group singing and playing! Ukuleles are much easier to learn than other stringed instruments, thereby allowing you to start playing songs right away--songs from many traditions... rock, blues, folk, classical, jazz and more! For adults/teens, Amy has designed a curriculum based on The Daily Ukulele books by Jim & Liz Beloff. For children, Amy uses traditional American folksongs. For teacher workshops, children's songs are learned. Find the Class Schedule here! Call 603-249-9560 for more information about classes in Milford & Nashua NH, onsite workshops or private lessons.
