Group Ukulele Classes
Ages 7 – Adult / All Skill Levels
Ukulele lessons can be fun as groups and private lessons. Music is best experienced by developing a repertoire of folk music. From Brother John to Hawaii uke tunes this class offers direct learning by enhancing the ability to hear and cooperate with others.
In the 10-weeks course students will learn how to hold the instruments and develop basic skills as they learn songs. Students will sing and play chords and develop plucking on the instrument as well. Class materials and instruments are included.
Ukulele’s popularity is on the rise! The ukulele (Jumping flea in Hawaiian) originated in the 19th century as a Hawaiian adaptation of the Portuguese machete. The ukulele community is friendly, inviting, and the instrument’s size and crisp sound brings warm smiles on people’s faces.
The ukulele comes in 4 different sizes: Soprano, Tenor, Concert, and Baritone.
Due to its small size and nylon strings, it is easy for kids to pick up. Each of our lessons are tailored to each student. For beginners, it is important for us to keep the students motivated.
Ukulele lessons can be fun as groups and private lessons. We offer lessons of 30min, 45min and 60min.
We host recitals every month in our performance hall. Every student of the music school can join and perform the music of their choice. It is also an opportunity for many to meet music friends and create groups and music ensembles.
We also host twice a year a Summer and Winter music festival, usually held over 2-3 days, where students perform their favorite music. Have a look at our videos HERE.
During the preview, you’ll visit our music studios, discuss your musical goals or needs with your teacher, try the instrument, and talk about lesson details. Please select your teacher, and click directly on their calendar to schedule a free meet and greet and tour with your teacher.

Why Learn in a Group?
Playing in a group is musically satisfying.
Most music is performed in groups, whether in a band, orchestra, or a choir. Learning together strengthens individual rhythm skills and listening habits and develops confidence. Keyboard Encounters students who wish to share their music with the rest of the class will have the opportunity to perform solos.
What happens once the session is over?
After the session (usually 10 weeks) is over, the student has several options:
- You are eligible to continue with the same group, in the next level, on the same day and time, with another 10 weeks session.
- You can transfer to another group if your learning pace is faster or slower, or if the time and day is no longer convenient.
- You can transfer to private lessons!
