Students will learn how to hold the ukulele, how to tune their instrument, appropriate finger positions for at least three chords, and two strumming patterns. Beginner songs will be introduced and practiced as a group.


In 2018, Hanson returned to her hometown of Ludington, Michigan and started the Ludington Ukes for adult musicians. Music has always been a part of her life. She has enjoyed learning various instruments and started playing the Ukulele 11 years ago during the beginning of the resurgence of the ukulele. Hanson is looking forward to working with young people through this workshop.
