BRATTLEBORO—A new round of ukulele classes, taught by Lisa McCormick, begins in mid-April, and beginners, and advanced beginner classes are available. Daytime, evening, and online-only classes are offered.
“The ukulele offers an amazingly easy entry in making music, welcoming beginners at any age, bringing them big smiles and joy within minutes of first touching the instrument,” McCormick said in a news release.
The “ukulele scene” has exploded in the Brattleboro area in recent months, with more than 200 new players taking McCormick’s classes and learning to play. Ukulele flash mobs, pub sings, and free public play-alongs have folded right into the strong supportive community arts scene in the Brattleboro area.
A world-renowned music instructor, McCormick specializes in teaching adult beginners through intermediate level students, with a signature instructional approach which nurtures fast and easy success when learning to play an instrument.
“It’s also great for the community. People discover they love playing music with others, and so new friendships and regular musical gatherings are blossoming all the time,” McCormick says.
