The Southborough Library is bringing back a popular musical program, this time in-person.  They are offering a series of ukulele lessons for tweens and teens.

You don’t need to own your own instrument to join the fun. A past grant* funded several ukuleles for the Library to lend out. (Although, those who have their own are also welcome to join.)

The Library promotes the ukulele as an instrument that is fun and easy to play. After a short lesson, participants should be able to play a few songs. No experience necessary.

Patrons ages 8-18 are invited to join instructor Julie Stepanek for two weekly group lessons in January. Stepanek will demonstrate the fundamentals, teaching how to tune, strum and read chords.

The free sessions will take place on Fridays from 3:00 – 4:30 pm, on January 6th and 13th. Sign up soon here.

To borrow a ukulele, email Library Director Ryan Donovan at rdonovan@cwmars.org.

This program is sponsored by The Friends of the Southborough Library.

*The 2020 grant was provided by the former Southborough Education Foundation. Since then, the non-profit was merged into the Southborough Community Fund.
