Intermediate Ukulele, an 8 week course with Danny Wootton
Dates: Monday 21st September to Monday 2nd November, plus a concert on week 8 [concert date TBC]
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.
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.
