What are the teleclasses?
For anyone that wants to have fun with something new for their ukulele... dazzle friends, get to play along with Doug, or expand their skills to play old style slack key rhythm, we will be studying one song a month (more complex songs may require more than 4 weeks).

Each week we will study a particular section of a song. By the time we're done you will be able to play along with the entire CD. Get the separate download tracks to help with learning, play along with Doug, or practice with the sounds from our Lanai. (more info below)

Participants will receive materials such as performance notes, song source stories, tuning/chord chart, etc.

We will answer questions.You may submit your questions prior to the class to help us cover more material.

Participants will be able to replay the teleseminar including slides and video for at least 30 days after the session.

Can't make it to a session due to other committment? You will be able to complete your studies and practice at your convenience. If you submit your questions in advance, they will be answered during the session for you to hear when you can review the session.

We plan to have a subscription price for those that want to continue with the teleclasses through the year. You will be able to cancel at any time.
