Wednesday, September 18, 2019 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm

Wednesday, October 16, 2019 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm

For those who can’t get enough of playing their ukuleles, let’s do another class!  Even though this is the second ukulele class, it is still for beginners. If you want to try your hand at learning the ukulele, please come. Newbies are encouraged. If you were in the first ukulele class, come and strum and help the new students, then sing along to holiday music in order to improve your ukulele skills.  The first two classes in September will be an intro to the ukulele:  tuning, strumming, and how to read the music handouts. Then in October we will continue strumming and playing EASY holiday music.  You DON’T need to know how to read music for this class!  Sign up beginning August 5.  Classes will be the first and third Wednesdays of each month from September through December from 6:30 to 7:30 pm.  This class is free.  The first class will be Wed., Sep. 4.

Open Music Night - Continuing in August

Join us for Open Music Night at the library from 6:30 to 7:30 pm on the first and third Wednesdays of each month . . .

Bring a music stand if you have one. Food and drinks are permitted (no alcohol). We can make copies of music to pass out. SINGING IS REQUIRED! Here are the guidelines (since this is at the library and we can't have loud instruments): . . .

   1. Acoustic string instruments of all types are welcome. Ukeleles, guitars, lap dulcimers, harps, hammered dulcimers, banjos, violins, etc. are welcome. No brass or drum kits.

   2. Box snares and bodhrans are permitted, but only two per session. If more come, take turns.

   3. Electric guitars and basses are iffy. You must bring all your own gear and keep them turned to quiet levels.

   4. Free reed instruments might have to be on a case by case basis. Harmonicas are fine, bagpipes are out. Small accordions or concertinas should be OK as long as they are not too loud. Cajun accordions might be a problem.

   5. We will have to set up a donation jar to cover the cost of any copies of music we need to make.

Any questions, ask Mark Reinemann at 513-897-4826.
