Summer means relaxing, fun, beaches, and ukulele! If you want to experience all of these, this camp can provide. Whether you have never played or you are looking to push yourself to the next level, take advantage of this opportunity to grow in a supportive and enjoyable environment. You will work with professional performing musician and private instructor Jason McLean to reach your goals, from simple strummin’ to advanced techniques and theory, and spend time playing on your own as well as with others.
