INTERMEDIATE UKULELE

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.

PREREQUISITES?

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!

WHAT'S COVERED?

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 :)​

COURSE FEES?

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.

COURSE VENUE?

2020 was definitely a tough year for 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 offerings were significantly reduced in 2020.

However, given the recent easing of restrictions, we are starting to dip our toes back into the face-to-face teaching! This is exciting news for us.

 

We will start to roll out our regular ensembles from May 2021 and we hope to be able offer public course dates from Term 3 onwards.

Stay tuned and thanks for your patience!

"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."
