The 2013 Summer Ukulele Lessons at the Joeten-Kiyu Public Library have been moved to September.
Children’s Library associate Erlina Naputi said they decided to postpone the ukulele classes to allow students in both private and public schools to better transition themselves to the new school year.
So far, 20 students—10 beginners and 10 intermediate—have signed up for the twice-a-week ukulele lessons that will be conducted by Larry Lee.
The ukulele class was originally set from Aug. 13 to 29. Because of the postponement, JKPL is still accepting interested students willing to learn the string instrument.
The ukulele class is open to children 8 years or older and adults and encompasses eight hours. It costs $50 and will be held from 4pm to 5:30pm every Tuesday and Thursday.
Students who passed the second level of 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.
Naputi said the ukulele class’ minimum enrollment is 15 students but it can accommodate as much as 40. Registration is on a first-come, first-paid basis and deadline is on Sept. 11.
Students must provide their own ukuleles and a folder to hold music sheets (plastic sheet protectors and a three-ring binder are recommended). Those without instruments can also borrow one from the library for free.
Parents or guardians must also fill a liability waiver form on behalf of their participating children and must adhere to public library policies and procedures.
