This next series of 6 classes will emphasize practical music theory.
Inspired by the arc and flow of a yoga class, this is the ideal setting to practice, develop and apply theoretical and technical fundamentals in order to embody a deeper musical understanding while gaining greater proficiency on the ukulele. Repertoire will ground this work into a rewarding and useful experience.
I. Right Hand Studies - strumming, finger-picking
II. Left Hand Studies - 4 finger permutations
III. Linear Approach - scales, modes, melodies
IV. Vertical Approach - harmonic progressions, voice-leading
V. Repertoire - application of materials in musical situations
These important skills are challenging to practice alone because the necessary consistency and focus can often feel tedious and boring. This small group class provides a safe and supportive opportunity for each individual to push themselves beyond their comfort zones. Ultimately, this process is designed to open greater musical enjoyment and fluidity in sharing music with others. Plus it’s fun!
The structure of the class allows for many levels to easily participate and to accommodate drop-ins.
