RIGHT HAND TECHNIQUES (Strumming) (Levels 2,3,4)
One of the defining elements of an ‘ukulele player is the use of the right hand.

UKES FOR YOUTH 1 & 2 (Youth)
Part of the Ukes for Youth program, we will be working on essential 'ukulele techniques including both strumming and picking in a child-friendly setting. This two-part class is welcome to various skills levels as there will be multiple parts to practice for both the advanced picker and the beginning strummer. These classes ultimately lead up to a performance on the Uke U stage so a bit of stage etiquette and performance basics will be covered as well. Handouts will be distributed early so willing students can practice the material before the class.

WIPEOUT AND RHYTHMIC IMPROV (Levels 3,4,5)
After the release of Pure Heart 2 in the late 90s with Jake Shimabukuro’s heroic performance, Wipeout became an ‘ukulele standard for many players. Since then artists have consistently reinterpreted the song, adding in different rhythms and techniques to reimagine the Surfari’s hit. Learn how to work through different rhythms ranging from straight fours to syncopating your strumming all while creating your own drum solo on ‘ukulele!

GERALD ROSS
HOW TO READ AND WRITE A CHORD CHART (All Levels)
Have you ever wondered how professional musicians perform an unknown piece of music; a song they've never heard before? Typically they are handed a sheet of music, they take a few quick glances at it, the band leader counts off the song and they immediately play the song. Can a hobbyist musician do this? Does one need to spend years learning music theory and perfecting sight-reading skills? Yes they can and no, years of training are not needed. The secret is learning to read and write a standard chord chart. We will learn the universal agreed-upon standard for "charting" a tune. This skill will allow you to share your music with any musician world wide.

This fun and easy class so if you own a pencil and can count to four you are more than ready for this class. No music theory needed. No music reading required.

INTRO TO CHORD MELODY (Levels 3,4,5)
Chord Melody is a solo approach to fretted instrument playing where both the chord and melody line are played at the same time. This is a very popular style in the guitar world where many virtuoso players exist. Can this solo style of playing be achieved on the tiny ukulele with its four strings and very short scale? Yes it can! Have no fear this class should actually be titled "Four strings are plenty enough!" This fingerstyle technique will use chord substitutions and single-note lines to craft complete, stand-alone arrangements. Songs from the Swing Era will be used as tools to learn this very rewarding technique.

A concert or tenor sized uke tuned GCEA is recommended. Some basic right-hand fingerpicking skills under your belt will speed you along as well. No music theory needed and no music reading required. No knuckle-busting chord shapes to learn. Class level: Confident beginner to Intermediate.

INTRO TO SWING UKULELE (Levels 2,3,4,5)
The 1930s and 40s were a magical time in the history of popular music. Swing was mainstream. The ukulele was made for swing music! Any uke song can swing and sound jazzy. It's easy to make your instrumental accompaniment more interesting through chord substitutions and strumming patterns. The material covered in this class is not exclusive to the jazz/swing world it can be used for all styles of music. No music theory needed. No music reading required. No knuckle-busting chord shapes to learn.

Just fun! A concert or tenor sized uke tuned GCEA is recommended. Confident Beginner to Intermediate.

THREE NOTE CHORDS (Levels 2,3,4)
All you need to get that bluesy/jazzy sound. Just because the ukulele has four strings doesn’t mean you have to play them all! Many times, you can say more musically with two or three notes than you can with four. We will learn how easy it is to finger three-note chords that sound much more bluesy and jazzy than their four-note counterparts. Simple Blues songs will be used to demonstrate this very effective, very hip-sounding style. No music theory needed, no music reading required, no knuckle-busting chord shapes to learn just fun!

Any sized uke tuned GCEA will work. Confident Beginner to Intermediate

Counting on your fingers is totally acceptable (we’ll only go to 7!). Learn how to move from major to minor and add color. We’ll get inside diminished chords, augmented chords, and suspended chords, so that you don’t have be afraid of them anymore!

SONGWRITING (All Levels – Non-Uke)
There are many ticking parts in getting a song to work. Melodies, rhythms, chords, and lyrics… Which chords will work? What notes will work? In this interactive workshop we can look at a tune you have written, or are working on, and we'll take a look at what works or . . . doesn't! Learn about songwriting techniques to get you out of a rut, or to perhaps inspire new ideas. There is no right or wrong answer here. All levels welcomed.

STRUMMING PATTERNS (Levels 2,3,4)
