Family Ukulele Lessons offered at Canastota Public Library

Experienced Ukulele teacher, Deb Guarneiri is bringing Family Ukulele Lessons to the Canastota Public Library. The group sessions, which will begin Feb. 17, will be generally held on the third Saturday of each month from 1 to 2 p.m. From 2 to 3:45 p.m., participants are welcome to stay and take part in Kanikapila. Kanikapila is the Hawaiian word for playing with joy.

The sessions currently scheduled are on the following Saturdays: Feb. 17, March 17, April 14 and May 19.

Beginner’s Classes, structured for all ages, will provide music sheets for each lesson. The first week a list will be offered including the items needed to participate.

The first few weeks, there will be some ukuleles available to use. Anyone borrowing a ukulele to use must trim the nails on their left hand as nails can cause damage to the fretboards on the instrument. A small number of ukuleles may be made available for purchase in the first few weeks.

At 2 p.m., everyone is invited to stay and experience playing the ukulele with a group. You can strum the chords you know or just sing until you feel comfortable doing both strumming and singing together.

Experienced piano and ukulele instructor, Deb Guarneiri, is donating her time to bring this great instrument to Canastota. Her experience includes Master Classes and workshops in four states over the past five years. Her mission is to encourage families to enjoy making music together. Children, under the age of 12, must have an adult participate with them in this program.
