Guitar & Ukelele

At Plum Nelly Creative, we honor the creative spirit in all its many forms. Music is a significant part of OUR lives – songwriting, performing, and playing with friends and for friends and we want to share it forward.

Classes for all those who would love to know how to play or sing but haven’t had the nerve, before now, to give it a shot. And for those who simply want to learn some musical skills. And for those who know they’ve got a secret superstar yearning to break free and who need help freeing that bird.

We are now offering music lessons for vocals, piano, guitar, ukulele, and songwriting to help folks gain their voice, expression, and musical fun with songs you help choose and lessons geared toward your learning style.

We offer some of the musical basics: how to read music, simple scale work (if desired); rhythm, how to count it and feel it; how to perform with confidence and fun. But our true focus is giving people the knowledge and know-how to have musical fun, whatever that looks like to YOU.

For those who have zero interest in knowing how to read music, we’ve got learning fun for you. Learning to tune in to your ear and the basic chords for your favorite songs. Or take it a step further and learn how to take a song with basic chords and begin to add some more musical complexity to it.

Plum Nelly Creative is a vendor for iLead and Granite Mountain, offering kids classes for any public and homeschooler in a supportive, creative environment.

Homeschool

I am a vendor with iLead and Granite Mountain Charter Schools, offering music classes for homeschoolers in a relaxed, music environment. Please use the links in this section for your classes.

Classes

Our classes give you the musical basics: hear the music, read the music; feel and count rhythm; how to play music with confidence and fun.

Guitar

Finger-picking fun. Build your guitar skills with guitar geography, how to tune, string and care for your instrument, hand and finger position, strengthening, rhythm, the magic of chords up and down the fretboard, and making sense of your favorite songs.

Ukelele

Ukelele is a beautiful place to begin your instrument journey. Learn your ukelele geography, how to string and tune your baby. How to hold the instrument, form chords and learn how to play your favorite songs.

Singing

Learning how to sing involves your brain as well as your body! It’s crazy but true. My students build their vocal skills by learning how to listen, how to breathe and support their bodies.

Singing

Learning piano is fun! All the keys, all the flats and sharps and the highs and the lows – all out there for you to see and touch. Learn how to find the keys, to feel the rhythm of the music, and how to play the songs you love.

Singing

Learn the basics of songwriting, writing, rhythm and phrasing, melody and harmony. We’ll have fun exploring ideas, writing exercises and how to edit without losing your song.

Preparing

For your first lesson

We’ll spend some time getting to know each other and we’ll play some musical games. Let’s have some fun with music!

1. What is your fave song?

This is a goals question, think about a song that makes you play air guitar and sing into the hairbrush microphone. Or one which simply moves you.

2. What is your musical experience?

What is your experience with music, lessons, and performing and/or writing music? What did you like and dislike about it?

3. What is your musical favorite thing to do?

Listen to music, dance, blast the music, hike and play music

About Wendy

Instructor

Wendy Hunt is a singer-songwriter whose original songs are full of heart and humor. She began her music journey in the 60s, falling asleep to her father’s music get-togethers and jams. Wendy first played on an old piano on the front porch of the family cabin and soon came to turn to the piano as a confidante and source of expression. 

She’s performed as a vocalist in The Buffalo Blues, Northwest, Circle Band, Plum Nelly Music and solo. While Wendy has performed at events, festivals and on stage, her favorite performances are impromptu and intimate.

Growing up along the east coast from Nashville to Pennsylvania, her music reflects the bluegrass, folk, and country of her childhood as well as jazz and blues.

Wendy studied vocal techniques with Josephine Lombardo, a professional soprano and creative director of the West Coast Opera Company.
