Beginning next month, the Joeten-Kiyu Public Library will be offering once again after-school ukulele classes on Thursdays.
The classes are open to children at least 8 years old and adults, and will be conducted by instructor Larry Lee from Feb. 7 to March 28, from 4pm to 5pm, at the JKPL's Children of Our Homeland Center in Susupe.
Library associate Erlinda Naputi said there will be two types of lessons: beginner and intermediate.
“Students who passed the second level of Mr. Lee's previous ukulele class will be able to register for the Intermediate class, while new students or those who want to refresh their ukulele skills can register for the Beginners class,” she said.
Advance registration and payment of $50 for the eight sessions would be required. Up to 40 students can be accommodated in the classes, and enrollment is on a first come, first paid/served basis.
Naputi said students need to provide their own ukuleles and they recommend that students use a three-ring binder plus plastic sheet protectors to hold their music sheets.
She noted, though, that the public library will loan ukuleles only during class lessons. The instructor, meanwhile, will also have ukuleles for sale.
Naputi added that participating adults as well as parents and guardians of young enrollees must fill out a liability waiver form and adhere to all JKPL policies and procedures.
