30-minute Beginner Ukelele Lesson

25


25 per session

The ukelele is an awesome little instrument that is easy to learn! The purpose of this lesson will be to give you the confidence to strike out your own, armed with a few techniques to help your practice sessions go a lot farther. Great for someone thinking about starting uke but unsure where/how to start, or even for kids!

This 30-minute ukelele lesson perfect for the absolute beginner (you don't even have to own a ukelele- I will bring a couple of mine, so you can try out the different kinds and see what you like!). We'll go over some basics about the instrument and things like rhythm and how chords work (aka, music theory, but don't get scared off!), and then learn a popular song of your choice. I'll bring a printout of the song for you to keep, along with a basic chord chart.

Now that the weather is nice, let's meet at a park in Asheville! Soon you, too, can be that person at the party with a ukelele!

Training & Qualifications


I've been playing ukelele since 2009, and jamming out to pop songs in earnest ever since.

Annie totally rocked it with the Ukulele lesson. My 14 year old daughter came home from the lesson, got her Uke back out and has been practicing on he...r own for the first time. Highly recommended!show more

Part of why I got into the urban homesteading life was because I love alternative/trade economies. I love that a modern technology can help facilitate that!

About Annie Frazier Halladay

I've lived in Asheville for going on two years. I'm from Colorado originally, and have lived all over the country. I love travel and road trips, and have been to 41 of the 50 United States. I now l...ive with my husband and our dog on our own little plot of heaven turned backyard homestead in West Asheville- we raise chickens for eggs and rabbits for meat and fur. I love to hike and camp, and Western North Carolina has been great for that. Creativity is a huge part of my life: I love playing music (I've played ukulele for 8 years, and play lots of other stringed instruments as well) and I am pretty obsessed with crafting the perfect playist for any occasion. I love belly dance and yoga- I'm always looking to do more of those things! I occasionally like to paint silly things, do crafty projects (like paper crafts/scrapbooking), and I love taking pictures of beautiful things around me. I also read, all the time! I refinish furniture professionally, and am always learning more and getting better at that. I love the sharing economies that the internet has brought to my life. Couchsurfing, Airbnb, Meetup, and now Simbi! I've hosted a ton of couchsurfers and airbnbers from all over the world and it's been an amazing experience to meet people from so many walks of life. show more
