Musical Alchemy: Folk to Blues to Jazz
This class is designed for the advanced beginner, intermediate and advanced player. It's a 12-week journey that unlocks the basics of music - melody, harmony & rhythm - and explores 3 distinctly different approaches to transforming a song from a folk song to a blues song and finally into a jazz song. Note reading is an advantage, but, not a necessity for the class. This will be a fun, in-depth and hands-on way to develop your ukulele musicianship. There will be many stops along the way in the journey to notice how certain musical elements can be altered to deliver vastly different results.
Mondays 7-8pm April 27th-August 3rd (off May 18th, July 20th & 27th) $350

Ukulele in the Classroom Book 1 Session 2
This is the best ukulele skill building program out there. It builds musical literacy and is an intensive 24 week program split between Fall and Spring. It is hard work, as note reading; ensemble skills; scales; melody; rhythm and harmony are all developed. The musical reward is even greater than the challenge. For the dedicated ukulele player, this class is highly recommended. Please note that this 12-week session is a continuation of the Winter 2015 class and requires completion of Session 1.
