Children ages eight to 12 can learn the fundamentals of playing the ukulele during a program being offered by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District beginning in early October.
This program is called Mahalo! Ukulele Fun, and is for ages eight to 12. Similar to a guitar, the ukulele has just six strings. Participants will need to supply their own ukulele. This course is great for a beginner musician, and the final class includes a performance for family and friends.

Mahalo! Ukulele Fun will take place starting at 11 a.m. on Saturday beginning Oct. 3. The cost for six one-hour sessions is $89 per person for Johnson County residents, or $99 per person for nonresidents. For more information or to register by phone, call (913) 831-3359.
