With Danny Wootton
Dates: Monday 27th January – Monday 3rd March
Our Intermediate Ukulele Course is suitable for ukulele players who have qualified with an “Idler Beginners Ukulele Diploma”, or else have some basic knowledge of the instrument.
We will introduce barre chords and thus all the chords, and learn to understand better the relationship between chords and positions on the fretboard. You will also learn about chord inversions, improve on your tabulature reading skills and get to grips with more complex rhythms. In addition we will work on arrangements of songs involving different parts for different members of the group.
Guest teachers will include Michael Tyack of Circulus and Musica 432, who will give insights into baroque ukulele and the art of Minstrelsy.
Danny Wootton plays in the Sometimes and Forever Band. In the past he has played in a number of bands including The Penguin Cafe Orchestra. The course will end with a party and a performance from the group.
Our ukulele courses are enormous fun and very satisfying. Your playing will advance far more quickly than if you were only self-taught.
Note: for those of you without ukuleles, we sell good models from £35 upwards. Please telephone us on 0207 221 5908 for more details.
