Instrumental ukulele lessons live!

Learn to play and teach "the hard ways."

The songs don't matter ... the skills do ... and you do too.


Daily Class Links

We meet Monday through Friday on YouTube. All classes will start at 5 minutes after the hour. They will wrap up within 45 minutes. Scroll down for your class resources below. If you're note sure online learning is for you, I do have face-to-face and Zoom hybrid classes through the city of Lakewood and that information is HERE.

Links for each class will appear here shortly before class time. Hit reload!
