The ukulele is an inexpensive and relatively easy to play instrument that is perfect to accompany singing groups. Students will need to have some experience in ukulele or guitar to be able to participate confidently in this intermediate group. The ability to interpret chord diagrams and confidence in basic strumming skills will be assumed in class members. Some singing is involved, but as we will be focussing on ukulele playing skills, you do not need to be a strong singer to join this group.
This is an intermediate group where more experienced members are encouraged to share their skills with the group. Less experienced players will be encouraged to participate to the best of their ability and use the group sound to build confidence in their musical skills.
REQUIREMENTS: Students must already have a ukulele, be able to tune the ukulele and understand chord charts/diagrams. For face-to-face classes, a music stand is also useful. Students will need to be able to print out the song sheets or download the song sheets on to a reading device.
TUTOR: Minuk is an experienced teacher who has been formally trained in classical music. She enjoys playing music in small ensembles and is keen to help others to gain musical knowledge and develop the technical skills that facilitate participation in community music-making..
