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.
Classes will be held on Zoom if COVID-19 restrictions do not allow face-to-face classes
