Join our intensive 4 week Intermediate Ukulele Course to gain further proficiency in your ukulele playing, learn more challenging skills and techniques and become more adept at TAB (melody) playing.
Our Intermediate Ukulele Course aims to give students greater mastery over their playing and knowledge over the underlying musical concepts that come with being an instrumental player.
It is critical that you have completed a foundation level beginner course such as our 4 week intensive Beginner Ukulele Course or have equivalent training or playing experience to join this course.
In our experience, many "self-taught" students who have been playing for years but have not had any official training of any sort often miss some of the foundation level skills that are assumed knowledge for this course.
If in doubt, get in touch!
This Course will encourage you to develop your ukulele skills as you:
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
Learn how to use a capo to change keys to suit your vocal range and/or the songs you love that weren't written for ukulele :)
The 4 week Intermediate Course fee is $150.
This cost includes 4 x 90 minute lessons ($30 each) plus all course materials including a Course Workbook and practice recordings.
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 $20 administration fee.
2020 was a challenging year for all music teachers. Many schools were forced to close due to venue closures and instead run their entire operations online. Zoom lessons didn't suit everyone and our course offerings were significantly reduced in 2020.
Frustratingly, the Greater Sydney lockdown in June/July 2021 means we still cannot resume face-to-face sessions as yet. When restrictions are lifted, sessions will return to our venue at the Seaforth Anglican Church (3 Frenchs Forest Rd, Seaforth).
The 4 week course will run over a series of weekend workshops and/or a weeknight evening session.

"How does one explain, what a wonderful personal experience, an emotional travel through a delightful musical appreciation of the Ukulele. Thank you for sharing your talent and skills with us. On the Beginner Course, Janine leads you astray, tempting you to experience this art form and on the Intermediate Course, you and your ukulele become one producing beautiful music, so much pleasure... Thank you for your inspiration, enthusiasm and encouragement. I can now share happy sounds of the ukulele with friends and family and encourage them to join in. Making music happen is sharing magic sounds."
