FAQ

Is experience required?

Students should come in with some very basic knowledge of the most rudimentary ukulele chords. We are here to help you with this! Don’t be nervous - these chords are easy, and there are plenty of online resources out there to help you if needed. Fluency is not expected - just come with some familiarity and we’ll take it from there

If I don't have a ukulele what kind of instrument should I buy?

Students may bring soprano, concert, or tenor ukuleles. If you already know how to play baritone ukulele, you may use that size instrument. IHM recommends that each student spend $70 or more on a ukulele to ensure that they get a quality instrument. Your local music store professional can provide advice on picking a good ukulele. Cordoba and Lanikai are two ukulele brands that we trust. Club members may also purchase less expensive ukuleles if necessary, but should view them as an introductory purchase.

Is home practice required?

Home practice is not required but it is encouraged - students will feel like they are getting more out of the program if they play at home, even if it’s just a few times per week for a few minutes at a time!.

Is there an attendance requirement?

Weekly attendance is recommended.

What kind of music will we be playing?

The Club will cover a wide variety of song material across styles and eras of American popular music. Students are encouraged to suggest favorite tunes for the group to learn.

Will I have to perform?

The Ukulele Club does not have a performance, but people who are interested in playing a song in the front of the Club will have the opportunity to do so.
