Intermediate 1 Ukulele: 4-Week, Online Course (Updated for 2021)
Soar at strumming, progress at plucking, beat barre chords, and level up from Improvers 2 with camaraderie, encouragement, and help along the way.
- Video tutorials with practice guidance
- Play-along videos
- Timing and strumming suggestions for set songs
- Add weekly video class – meet up with your classmates
- Completion certificate
When you have completed the tutorials, you can choose to submit videos to get feedback on one full song or on specific tips on any of the songs, or you can join a group class if timezone permits. The group class times are here. You can ‘repeat’ each class as many times as you want to for up to 6 months after you’ve booked the course – the videos remain open to you. Your classes will be recorded and you’ll have lifetime access to these.
Join this course if you’ve done 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?
With a maximum of 6 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 more picking patterns, barre chords, and strumming methods. Like the beginners’ and improvers’ courses, you’ll play at least 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!
