Austin Ukestra

This is a differentiated Ukulele Orchestra (Ukestra for short) for my students to get together and learn to play in a structured ensemble focused on note-reading while deepening their musicality.  The material will accommodate players with at least one year of note-reading experience and beyond.  Weekly attendance is not mandatory, though there is a minimum requirement of 2 rehearsals per month to participate in recitals and other live performances.  Arrangements will be made available after registration and will also be viewable in Soundslice.  Highly recommended for those who want more ukulele music in their lives!  (Must have completed Ukulele in the Classroom Book 1 or have private audition.) We have a monthly residency at Recycled Reads Bookstore every 2nd Sunday from 1-2pm.  Our ever-expanding repertoire includes classical, rock, original compositions, jazz and more.  Cost is $250/semester ($200 Early Bird Price) and includes printed materials and folder.

$200 through 5/1/20 ($250 on 5/2/20)
