Our program accepts students in grades 1-6. Tuition for a 17-week semester is $125. This covers the ukulele, tuner, all instruction materials, and weekly group lessons. Partial or full sponsorships may be available.
Students are expected to:
- attend weekly group classes
- participate attentively during class
- practice the ukulele at home and complete assignments
- have fun learning new skills and making new friends
Our teachers have rich and varied backgrounds in music and are skilled, enthusiastic uke players who love working with kids.
Our curriculum is Ukulele in the Classroom, a successful, multi-level program developed for schools across Canada. Many classes in the United States also use this curriculum.
Our classrooms are centrally located to better reach out to students. Classes consist of 15-20 students.
Our students represent a diverse cross-section of Chico. Most have had no previous music instruction, but those who have still find plenty of fun and challenge in CCUG.
