Do you teach and lead ukulele? We believe that an effective ukulele teacher is also a leader. There is no avoiding it.
Mark Jackson and Jane Jelbart at The Sum of the Parts (music)...
- teach effective repertoire, which gets groups beyond hum'n'strum to help you retain experienced and inexperienced players alike.
- facilitate networking opportunities for ukulele teachers and community leaders
- provide resources and reflection opportunities, helping ukulele practitioners to improve and maintain their skills and knowledge.
We run one and two day training opportunities.
- Ukulele Leadership Training introduces ukestrated repertoire over two days, with deeper reflections on good teaching practice and community leadership as detailed in The Ukestration Manual.
- RATPAC or RaTPUCL - a one day opportunity to get up to speed with effective Repertoire and Teaching Progressions, and includes a little about good teaching and leadership practice.
Mark and Jane demonstrated excellent skills, as musicians, teachers, facilitators and colleagues. I learned things that I didn’t expect to, as well as everything I did expect. The Ukestra session I attended was also fun and informative. You are both shining examples to the rest of us. Congratulations and thank you both.
Thank you for the opportunity to take part in the ULT. It has left me with the feeling of confidence to be able to ukestrate and lead a group of Ukulele players who will do more than hum and strum. I feel you have increased my knowledge of Uke music by so much more than I could have imagined. Again I say many thanks to you both
Overall, I thought the training was well balanced and personally I got a lot out of the training days. It was well broken up into theoretical and practical components. It was also valuable to meet people from other groups and find out what they were doing and also making contacts with others.
Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou. I have so appreciated being with like minded ukegeek peers as an opportunity to reflect on my teaching practice and also feed my own hunger to learn more. I’m an avid supporter of your approach – both socially and musically. I thankyou both for the huge amount of thought and effort that went into the manual and organising this event. Inspiring !
