Tacoma Community Ukulele Project: Exploring the Ukulele*

The ukulele is an instrument that you can learn chords & songs on with no prior musical training, so please join us regardless of your previous musical experience and leave with the tools to keep learning on your own. Over the course of just four classes, you will learn at least eight songs, multiple strumming patterns, practice techniques to carry your learning into the future, and all in a fun & engaging social setting!

Finding, Telling, and Sharing Life Stories*
This 6-week (January 18 – February 22) course will teach participants to explore their life experiences, work them into short stories or vignettes and pass them on as legacy.

Participants will learn:

  • To chart their life experiences that made them who they are.
  • To understand the story that underlies the life experience.
  • To write creatively about life experiences in a short story or vignette.
  • To give and receive feedback on their writing.
  • Ways to pass on their stories as legacy.

Students will benefit most by attending all sessions but are welcome to come to one or any combination of sessions. Please bring a notebook and something to write with.
