Public Libraries Offer Self-Paced Online Music Lessons From Master Musicians
Want to learn how to play an instrument? Want to learn from a professional who mastered their art? Then look no farther than your public library.
The Hawaiʻi State Public Library System launched ArtistWorks, an online program that provides world-class instruction for popular string and band instruments, including ʻukulele, via self-paced lessons from professional musicians.
