Kids: Learn to Play the Ukulele This Summer! (VIDEO)

How fun would it be to learn to play the ukelele this summer? Very fun! The Music Store in Mesa is offering group youth ukulele classes for kids ages 6 to 16, from June 22nd to July 13th. The lessons consist of four classes for $20 total. Classes meet on Thursdays from 6:30-7:30pm.

Absolute beginners to the ukulele are welcome. The class will be taught by instructor Cory Fournier and focus on topics such as how to play chords, how to change between chords quickly and smoothly, strumming and arpeggio patterns for the rhythm hand, how to play in different time signatures, and how to read and interpret various styles of sheet music and music charts. Players who are already playing some chords and even some songs will still benefit from the topics covered. More advanced topics may include how to learn to sing and strum simultaneously, how to play melodies on the Uke, and how to transpose songs into appropriate keys for your personal singing voice. There’s something here for everyone!

About Cory Fournier:
Cory has been playing and teaching Acoustic and Electric Guitar for over 25 years. He has played a wide variety of styles with emphasis on Rock, Pop, and Praise and Worship music. Cory’s musicianship is largely the result of practical experience, having left music school to tour with a Top 40 group. He does, however, employ his Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology on a daily basis, “using immediate gratification (songs) to motivate students into learning what they need to know (theory).” While Cory is capable of providing in-depth study, his philosophy of music leans toward the “less talk, more play!” approach. Cory currently plays in his own acoustic duo and with his church band. His love of music and positive attitude provide a welcome learning environment for students of all ages.
