Join this course if you’ve done both our beginner’s and improver’s courses. Or, if you have played guitar and know all your ukulele chords in 1st position, without over-reliance on chord diagrams, plus, you’re confident with strumming and chord changing and you know how to read tab – you’ve played basic melody already. If that sounds like you, then you’re ready for the intermediate. We’ll unlock the fretboard with moveable chords, and learn more finger-picking melodies. Sound good?
You’ll need to complete the current week’s tutorials, songs, and set some time aside each day to practice them on your own. Then, you can choose to either submit videos to get feedback on specific sections on any of that week’s songs (up to 1-minute per song), or you can join a group class (if your timezone permits) to ask questions, get help if you need it and play through the songs you’ve learned. Ideally, you’ll have started at least 4 days prior to the group class. The group class times are here. If you need to, you can repeat once more, in the 6-months after booking. This isn’t a one and done option, you will be supported as it’s important to get you going.
With a maximum of 12 people in a class, this course will enable you to play moveable chords, learn to fingerpick a number of melody lines and play different strumming patterns and rhythms with your ukulele. You’ll get to know your instrument a bit better, and play your ukulele using different voicing (inversions) of chords. It’s a great way to get out of the ukulele plateau of only playing first position chords. It’ll open up the fretboard a bit, give you some picking patterns, barre chords, and strumming methods. Like the beginners’ courses, you’ll learn 3 new songs each week, with new strumming or finger-picking patterns, and we’ll provide online resources to help you with your practice at home. If you put some time, in between the classes, you’ll get a lot out of the 4 weeks. This course is a great way to improve your skills, meet new people and have fun.
If you put some time in on your own ukulele in between the classes, you’ll get an awful lot out of these 4 weeks as we’ll provide you with resources, backing tracks and in-between tutorial support for you and your new peers. All you need to do is bring yourself, a ukulele and practice for at least 10 mins per day between classes. Does that sound good? Then we look forward to getting you strumming!
