Enrol in Ukulele Orchestra for Beginners & Baritone
Course Code: ARTS2445
This course is not suitable for absolute beginner players. Minimum requirements: You'll need to know how to tune your instrument and play a dozen basic ukulele chords. Being able to read music is an asset but not essential.
This is a unique opportunity to develop your ukulele skills in an ensemble setting. Together with the companion "Intermediate/Advanced" course, explore a wide variety of music with arrangements that feature easier and harder parts to accommodate a wide range of playing experience. Whether you have had some previous experience playing in a ukulele ensemble, or you are entirely new to the concept, there will be a part for you. Spend part of each day in your class learning your parts and refining details, and part of each day working with the companion class as a full ensemble. The goal is to prepare and perform an end-of-week concert for the enjoyment of the summer school community. You will be using written scores or tablature as well as learning some songs by ear. You will be playing simple melodic lines, harmony parts and strumming or plucking some parts. Singing is encouraged but not required. You are required to bring a ukulele in good working order. Arrangements are for ukuleles in C tuning and baritone ukuleles in G tuning.
