"Play Along with Ukulele Mele" workshops for ukulele players of all abilities are held periodically at the Bailey House Museum in Wailuku. You'll learn to play by ear as we play and sing popular songs without looking at the music. We start with easy two-chord songs, and work our way up in complexity with three-chord, four-chord, and some five-chord songs from different musical genres. Workshops are held on a Saturday from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Mele donates her time for this event, as the admission fee goes directly to the Museum. Check the schedule of upcoming workshops and plan to be there!
