Enrol in Ukulele Orchestra - Intermediate/Advanced
Course Code: ARTS2443
This course is not suitable for beginners. Minimum requirements: intermediate and advanced players should have completed Ukulele Intermediate (previously called Ukulele Ensemble I) or a similar class and be able to read and play from written scores in the keys of C and F. You will be playing melodic lines and harmony parts at an intermediate to advanced level with some strumming, fingerpicking and singing.
This is a unique opportunity to develop your ukulele skills in an ensemble setting. Together with the companion "Beginner and Baritone" course, explore a wide variety of music with arrangements that feature easier and harder parts to accommodate a wide range of playing experience. Spend part of each day in your class learning parts and refining details, and part of each day working with the companion class as a full ensemble. You will be using written scores as well as learning some songs by ear. The goal is to prepare and perform an end-of-week concert for the enjoyment of the summer school community. You are required to bring a tenor, concert or soprano ukulele in good working order. Baritones may enrol in the companion "Beginner and Baritone" course. Arrangements are for ukuleles in C tuning. A ukulele strung with a low "G" string is required. Low "G" strings will be available for purchase for those who need them.
