Welcome newbies! For a headstart, for a tutorial on tuning your ukulele.
Confident beginners can strum through the basic chords without breaking the rhythm. Perhaps you've nailed down a couple of strumming and fingerpicking patterns as well.
You have an extended chord vocabulary and can strum a steady rhythm while singing. An intermediate student is able to catch on and follow along on simple tunes fairly quickly.
You can hear chord progressions, mastered some chord inversions and barre/4-fingered closed chords and can strum a steady rhythm while changing chords.
At the Los Angeles International ‘Ukulele Festival, one flat fee of $47 includes entry into the festival to enjoy all-star performances and as many workshops as you want to take all day (Torino Plaza, Toyota Meeting Hall and Ken Miller Recereation Center). Get started with the basics and build from there throughout the day. If you've already been playing for some time, intermediate and advanced classes will help get you out of a rut and take your playing to the next level. Bring your music stand, tuner, and a friend!
