Kids Ukulele Club. Jackson School of the Arts is proud to host Harmony Garden classes. This beginner’s ukulele class is a great introduction to instruments for kids. The ukulele is small, has just four strings, and is fairly easy to play. Neither toy nor miniature guitar, it falls somewhere in between and gives kids a way to transition to other instruments later on. Class is on Thursday from 6-6:45. For ages 7-12. It is highly suggested that each student owns his or her own ukulele to practice at home. Instruments will be provided to borrow on the first class and available for purchase through the instructor for $40, after that. Jackson School of the Arts, 634 N. Mechanic Street.
