Ukulele for Beginners

Erin Gabriel

Word on the street is that the ukulele is the new cowbell! But seriously - this project gets you a beautiful ukulele to keep, and the skills to make it usable right away! First lesson: "It's OO-KOO-LEH-LEH!"  Sources say this project is not only fun, but an awesome way to spend a week with your friends, old and new. Join me and in 5 days we'll have you on your way! In just a few days, you'll be playing Elton John, John Lennon, and John Mayer. Also, other artists not named John. No experience necessary! Let’s jam!

Special Considerations

Participants must be willing to follow COVID guidelines.  If a participant, experiences any overlapping CDC symptoms of COVID during the project, the student will be isolated, and the student’s family will be required to pick up at their current location.  The family will bear all the costs associated with student pick-up. CDC's possible symptoms of COVID can be found here.

By selecting the above project(s,) you and your family are accepting the financial responsibility for the cost of the projects.  This includes any unrecoverable expenses incurred if Overlake, or any federal, state or local government forces cancelation of the project, or if you or your family decide not to attend, or your student becomes symptomatic and has to be isolated.
