ukes for Little Tokyo
Fall 2019

The program is geared towards engaging Japanese and Japanese American older adults while providing free ukulele instruction in Japanese and English. By providing in-language services, we are also helping to breakdown the cultural barriers and provide spaces where participants can feel welcome and at home at JACCC and Little Tokyo.

Weekly Japanese language ukulele classes for older adults 65+ begin on Thursday, September 5th at 1 PM at JACCC. Please join us for the first session to learn more about the program. No prior experience necessary!
