Ukulele for Advanced Players

Tue 30 Aug 2016 @ 12:00 - Thu 1 Sep 2016 @ 15:00

£204.00

This advanced course is for players wishing to learn finger-picking and self-accompanied solos on soprano, concert or tenor ukulele. We will study the rudiments of music, scale patterns and moveable chords, as well as techniques specific to the ukulele such as hammer-ons and pull-offs. We will play a diversity of repertoire – Baroque and Classical transcriptions, pop, rock, jazz and original writings including Hawaiian music. We will also be looking at the requirements for Victoria College examinations and advice will be given to those wishing to explore their syllabus. To participate in this course you must be able to play chord shapes and change fluently without looking at the fret board and be able to use your right hand thumb and fingers independently across all four strings.  Alternatively you may have recent experience of playing classical guitar.
PLEASE NOTE: Beginners and Intermediate Ukulele courses are available with an emphasis on developing chords and strumming techniques.
