A Beginner's Bag of Tricks:Ukulele

Coffey Music

  8 week class Sept. 26, Oct. 3, 10 , 17, 24, Nov. 7, 14, 28 (no class on Oct. 31 and Nov. 21) While there are no shortcuts to playing music there are lots of things that sound very cool and are not too hard to play! Following up on my well received beginner ukulele class at Common Ground on the Hill this past summer I am offering a fun beginner class exploring the ukulele. We'll learn songs in many styles including- Blues, Folk, Reggae, Rock & Roll, Bluegrass, & Celtic, we'll also learn some fancy intros and endings to jazz up your playing , and delve into some scales and soloing. Everything will be covered from the ground up so the class is open to absolute beginners up thru folks who are just looking to break out of a musical rut. I hope to see all my uke friends there!

Time to Jam! (Fall Session)

Coffey Music

8 week class Sept. 26, Oct. 3, 10, 17, 24, Nov. 7, 14 & 28 (no class on Oct. 31 and Nov. 21) Fall is almost here and it's time to jam! This popular class hasn't been offered since the session last spring. These classes are for those who play an instrument, sing, or both, and are looking for an opportunity to play with other people. This is where much of the magic of music is. We'll learn a couple songs each week and learn about rhythm, dynamics, improvising and playing together. Be prepared to have fun! Bring your guitar, mandolin, harmonica, banjo, bass, ukulele and voice and explore a variety of music including blues, folk, country, Irish, and New Orleans rock & roll! “I love how quickly Chris gets everyone to settle in and make music together in these jam classes. Whatever your level, whatever your instrument, he helps you build confidence and skills for playing and soloing. It’s rewarding and very, very fun.” Cynthia G., Ukulele **For more information and to register email Chris at chris@christopherjames.com or through the contact link, or call 410-812-9446.
