This relaxed group class is designed to get students started playing songs within the first lesson! This class includes learning basic chords, reading tablature, technique, arpeggios, strumming patterns, and some simple, familiar songs.
Every month a new song & technique are introduced and broken down into understandable sections. Students who wish to be challenged are encouraged to use new chord shapes, etc, while the novice players focus on the basic material. This allows students of all levels to play and learn together, as well as on their own.
This is the essential Music Together class, one that a child can attend from birth through age five. This basic class follows the recommendations of child development researchers-grouping children of a variety of ages because this fosters natural, family-style learning. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older ones; older children learn by leading younger ones; and adults are happy because the children in the family can go to class together. Each child participates at his or her own level in singing, moving, chanting, listening, watching, or exploring musical instruments. Any caregivers-parents, grandparents, nanny-can bring the children. The whole family is welcome for this important family music experience.
The Strum Shop is a family owned musical instrument store which was opened by Daniel Elliott and Stu Herreid in May of 2012 when they both noticed a need for support of the rapidly growing ukulele community in the greater Sacramento area.
The Strum Shop is known for our many music workshops and concerts held all throughout the year. We offer private music lessons every day of the week and group lessons on various days throughout the week. We also offer instrument rentals and in-house repairs of fretted instruments as well as school band and orchestra instruments.
The Strum Shop was selected as a Top 100 Dealer by the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM), the global association of music products and music retailers in 2016.
