Kirk makes the lesson fun, educational and playable for all who attend! We loved it! Also get to try out a variety of instruments during the class. Can purchase with a discount after class.

Of course, you expect ukuleles and lessons, and the store offers that... and much more! Vintage vinyls, hand-dyed yarn, glass guitar picks, Indian saris recycled into wraps and throws, and a very cool atmosphere... stop by and relax for a while!
