Utah Ukulele Classes

See the above calendar for session start dates.

  • Wednesday Evenings at 6-7pm at Ryan’s Studio: Happy Valley Uke Club. This all-levels group prepares music to perform together at various concert venues and gives musical service at rest homes throughout the year. Members learn how to sing, strum, fingerpick and harmonize on popular songs with just 2-4 chords each (which makes it ideal for beginners). The group also meets the need of players with some previous experience by offering different chord inversions and more advanced strums/fingerpicking for those that want them. Dues are $55 for each 9-week session culminating in a performance on the 9th week. Contact ryan@ukuleleplay.com to reserve a spot.
  • Wednesday Evenings at 7:30-9pm at Ryan’s Studio: Happy Valley Ukes : Utah’s Ukulele Orchestra. This ukulele ensemble is similar to the above, but adds intermediate to advanced repertoire, instrumentals and tablature-based playing. Looking for a challenge, singing and playing with a great group of people? This is the ensemble for you. 2-4 part ukulele arrangements combined with 2-3 part vocal harmony. As the parts are differentiated in difficulty, UFO HUM welcomes early intermediate to advanced players. Contact ryan@ukuleleplay.com for details.
  • Monday Afternoons : Ukulele Youth Choir. This is a performance group for ages 10-17 where youth can enjoy and learn more about the ukulele and good singing. This is a TUITION-FREE program of the American Fork Children’s Choir, made possible by a grant from the AF PARC program. Full details can be found at http://afcc.choiworks.com.
  • Ukulele Bootcamps for absolute beginners are held periodically in various locales (see calendar). Traveling Bootcamps are also available for groups of almost any size by appointment (PDF eBrochure). Contact ryan@ukuleleplay.com to book a bootcamp for your family, business, church or other organization (minimum 5 participants).

“Don’t worry about being too old or too young for joining the ukulele community. Most ukulele groups have members ranging in age from teenagers up to pensioners and a good gender balance. Most groups welcome beginners . . . no matter who you are you’ll get a warm welcome.” ~Alistair Wood, Ukulele for Dummies
