Is the Ukulele gaining popularity?
I have taught many individual lessons and classes throughout my life. As I have posted in previous Blog articles here at Fretmentor’s Blog, the community education classes offer a great deal for someone wanting to learn how to play an instrument. The classes are inexpensive and the savings compared to private lessons always helps.
Due to the popularity of the Ukulele, I decided to schedule a new class this term for those who may be interested in learning this instrument. To my amazement, the class quickly sold out and there is a weight list to get in. My other classes in guitar, banjo, mandolin and music theory are still open for enrollment.
Which leads me to one question, Why do you think a Ukulele class has become so popular to sell out with still two weeks left in open enrollment? I would be curious to hear back from others about this topic.
Here is some information for those interested about upcoming classes:
