Library offers beginner and intermediate classes
Pick up a new skill this fall, learn to play the uke.

The Woods Hole Public Library is offering ukulele classes this fall. Two 5-week classes will start on Tuesday, October 29, 2013. The intermediate class is at 5:30 p.m. and the beginner class is at 6:30 p.m. The next week, the classes will move to Wednesday, and be held Wednesdays from then on.

According to Librarian Jennifer Gaines, the classes will once again be taught by Tom Goux. The fee is minimal and the class size is small, so Gaines recommends calling the library at 508-548-8961 to register soon.

Goux is the founder-director of the Greater Falmouth Mostly All Male Men's Chorus, Notescape.cod and the Rum Soaked Crooks. He was also a middle school music teacher.

The ukulele was developed in Hawaii in the 1880s and is based on several small, similarly-shaped string instruments brought to the islands from Portugal.

The classes will be held at the Woods Hole Public Library, 581 Woods Hole Road, Woods Hole, 508-548-8961.
