Ukulele & Guitar Club

 

Welcome to the M.U.S.E. Ukulele and Guitar club. We are excited to be offering instruction in both Ukulele and Guitar this fall. Our goal with these classes is to create an enriching environment that not only teaches the students how to play their instrument but fosters their creativity as they progress. The curriculum will expose students to various genres, styles, scale work and song writing.


Classes are offered to grades 3-8 and are held once a week at school for 50 minutes. We are currently offering these classes at:


Winterhaven School SE Portland

Ukulele Club  (Grades 3-4-5)

Guitar Club (Grades 5-8)


• There are two sessions during the year.

• Classes run from October-January  and February-May

• Cost per Session: $256 plus $20 Materials Fee


Students need to have an instrument for home practice and class. Ukuleles range in price but for about $50-$60 you can get a  Ukulele that will do just fine.



















Here is an example of Ukuleles on the market:


Makala Dolphin Soprano Ukulele

For just under $50, you can play the fun and famous Makala Dolphin ukulele Don’t let the price of this ukulele fool you. People everywhere online rave about these. They are made out of plastic but they have great tone and playability for the price. Definitely replace the default strings that come with it with nicer higher-quality ukulele strings. This is a perfect ukulele for beginners on a budget or those who want a good “throw-it-in-your-backpack” ukulele. The Makala dolphin ukulele comes in a lot of different colors like: red, pearl white, black, light blue, metallic blue, pink, yellow, green, or purple.

We will look around the Portland and bay area for local dealers. Rockin Robbies in Concord is a good place to call if you are in the bay area.

We will have more information about Guitars in the next couple of weeks.
