Bay Chamber Concerts and Music School announces a new session of the ukulele group class with instructor Jeffrey Weinberger, a popular class for intermediate uke players offered throughout the year in six-week sessions.

The new session begins Monday, Nov. 7, at 6 p.m. at the Bay Chamber Recital Hall, 18 Central St., on the top floor of the Shepherd Building.

This intermediate level class will emphasize song learning. Through the songs of varied styles and techniques, students will learn not only more about uke playing, but also basic musicianship.

Players must know at least six chords and be able to play a simple song all the way through. The entire spectrum of "intermediate" level playing will be covered though, and all players will have an equally important role. Students should bring their own instrument and electronic tuner. The instructor will provide the music, instruction and inspiration.

"There is a ukulele revolution going on,” said Weinberger, who attended Berklee College of Music and recently received his B.M. in Music with an Education Concentration Summa Cum Laude from UMaine, Augusta.

An accessible, portable, inexpensive instrument for all ages, the ukulele can enrich one’s life and add a new dimension to family and community music making. For more information or to register, visit or call 236-2823.
