HOW CLASSES WORK 

Classes by Skill Level 

These are 2-4-day classes from 10am–12pm EST Saturday through Tuesday. These are continuous classes based on skill level, which means you will choose a class and stay with it for either two (2) or four (4) days. There will be pre-registration for these classes, and you must sign up for one of them. If you are an advanced player, you must send in your 2–5-minute video to uke@strathmore.org and receive approval by the Artist Directors to be placed in that class. If you find you are not suited for a class during the first day, you can switch classes within the first 15 minutes by leaving the class and joining another one.

Walk-in Classes  

These classes are one-hour choice classes and do not require pre-registration. Feel free to hop around as you wish.

(BF) = Baritone-Friendly 

Baritone Friendly classes are often taught on tenor ukuleles, but baritone chord charts or tabs are provided, and the instructor will have a baritone ukulele handy for answering any questions. For other classes, baritone players should either play a tenor/concert/soprano Ukulele or use a Capo on the 5th fret.

Skill Levels
