*** Beginner, Intermediate, what am I? What package is best for me?
The 11AM Beginner Workshop is for actual beginners, not “newer player.”
If you consider yourself a beginner but are already comfortable with a few chords and can casually strum, sing, and play a few songs, you should take the Intermediate classes. Although some material in these classes may be challenging for newer players, our instructors are all excellent and will offer material that all levels of players will get value from. In other words, as a newer player you may not be able to grasp all of what is offered in the Intermediate classes, but you should be able to take home 3-4 techniques to improve your playing.
Various Package Pricing:
There are three options for all levels of players:
- 10AM Intro to Ukulele: Free, must register
- 11AM Beginner Workshop: $32
- 11AM Beginner Workshop plus the 1:30 Strumming Hand Workshop: $55
- Both Workshops plus a new Makala MK-C Ukulele and Educational Materials over and above workshop handouts: $89
Newer to Intermediate Players:
- Any Individual Intermediate Workshop: $32
- All Three Intermediate Workshops: $79
- All Three Intermediate Workshops plus Sunset Concert: $100
If you are a true beginner, the 9:30 and 11:30 workshops with Steven and Michael will be over your head. But the 1:30 Strumming Hand Workshop will be fine, after you’ve taken the Beginner Workshop.
