The Intermediate Ukulele Course
Our Intermediate Ukulele Course is an intensive 4 week program designed for those who have gained proficiency in the foundation skills and wish to gain a more in-depth knowledge and understanding of musical concepts, learn more challenging ukulele techniques and gain greater mastery over your playing.
You MUST have completed a foundation level beginner course such as our 4 week intensive Beginner Ukulele Course or have equivalent playing experience to join this course.
What can I expect to learn?
More advanced strumming techniques and finger picking patterns
Expand your chord vocabulary with more complex chords from different chord families
Improve your ability to transition more efficiently between chords
Develop greater mastery in your coordination and playing technique
Expand your tab notation skills for riff (melody) playing
Learn how to transpose music into new keys and use a capo to make your music match the music you love
At the end of the course you will have the skills to enhance your sound with new tricks and techniques and if keen to progress further, be well prepared to join Level 1or 2 of the Lightly Strung Orchestra.
The Intermediate Ukulele Course fee is $250. This cost includes the cost of all course materials including the course workbook and practice recordings.
Please note there are no refunds or makeup classes for missed lessons. If there are exceptional circumstances whereby a participant is unable to attend the course for any reason, this situation can be discussed with the teacher and arrangements agreed upon.
Once a course has started, you are not entitled to a refund simply because you changed your mind. If you postpone your enrolment to a future course within 5 days of the start date, or after you have commenced a course, you will incur a $25 administration fee.
Course Dates & Venue?
Our next scheduled Intermediate Ukulele Course was due to run from Saturday 2nd - 23rd May 2020, however due to the Covid-19 restrictions surrounding social gatherings and forced closures of most of our teaching venues, this course has been postponed until we are able to return to face-to-face teaching.
Sessions are usually held from 2pm-4pm in the Manly Library Meeting Room, 1 Market Place, Manly, and we hope to be able to return there as soon as Government directives allow us to recommence face-to-face teaching. Stay tuned for updates...
