The Community is invited to learn the ukulele with experienced music educator Heather Beers in the Rockland Public Library’s Community Room on Saturdays from 1-2 PM in May and June, beginning May 7. All ages (children and adults) and levels of skill of are invited to attend. The workshops are interactive, so bring a concert or soprano ukulele, wear comfortable shoes and clothes, and get ready for a fun and engaging musical experience. A limited number of ukuleles will be provided for those who do not own one. Participants will learn the strings, chords, melodies, and strumming patterns of favorite songs while having fun. Although attendance at all classes is not required, consistent attendance will help students improve. As singing will be part of instruction, the instructor strongly recommends that participants wear masks.
