The Kroc Center to Offer Unique Group Music Opportunity
Just in time for the vibrance and buzz of spring, The Kroc Center is excited to announce a fun opportunity for the public to learn a new instrument with the upcoming Group Ukulele course. The facility’s own Jonathon Weller, education and fine arts specialist, will teach the class. Group Ukulele will take place Tuesdays, April 5-26, from 11am-noon.
“I’m really excited to be able to offer this class,” stated Weller. “Ukulele is an easy instrument to learn; we can be playing songs you recognize by the end of our first class. I discovered what a fun instrument the ukulele is while I was teaching elementary school music classes, but it’s a great instrument for budding musicians of all ages to learn!”
The ukulele is a great instrument for a beginner to learn to play. The class will meet once a week to explore this fun and easy-to-learn instrument. Instruments and music will be provided. However, participants are welcome to bring their own instrument if they own one.
Weller has been a member of The Kroc Center’s staff for two years. He has a double major in vocal performance and music education from Roosevelt University’s Chicago College of Performing Arts. Since joining the Quincy community in 2020, Weller has been a conductor for Quincy Community Theater.
