Upcoming

7 Jul 2015 Beginner Ukulele Part 2
Joel Jacques
Continue to develop the basic skills needed for making music on the ukulele while playing popular songs. Variations and refinements to all of the strumming techniques learned in Beginner Ukulele will be explored, along with the introduction of new rhythms, patterns, scales and basic fingerpicking techniques. You will also learn melodic playing and how to read tablature notation. July 7-28 (Tuesdays), 6:00-7:00pm, $68 members, ($80 non)
7 Jul 2015 Continuing Ukulele Class
Joel Jacques
Expand your bank of skills in the three main areas of strumming (varying your rhythms), fingerpicking (techniques and patterns) and melodic playing (solos and duets). Some fundamental music theory will be explored. Think of this as an exercise class: a place to push your playing skills in order to get them into top shape. Being comfortable with strumming, singing and some fingerpicking, plus basic tablature reading is recommended to get the most out of this class. July 7-28 (Tuesdays), 7:15-8:15pm, $68 members, $80 non members
