Ukulele Entrée Courses for Ukulele Novices!
After you finish a beginner workshop what then?
Of course you can join a ukestra but what if you just don’t feel ready to do that?
Has it been months since you picked up the ukulele and you need a bit of a refresher?
Ukulele Entrée 1 Course
Where? The Edwards (148 Parry St, near MarketTown, Newcastle West)

The cost for this course is $105 for the six weeks ($17.50 a class, including GST). This is a prepaid price. If you pay by the class then it costs $20 per class. If you can only make 4-5 of the classes in this period then let us know and we can lower the price (pro-rata price 5 classes for $90). If you decide to attend a ukestra during the week, (which we encourage you to do), then you only pay $9 for this session.
In this 6 week course we teach the following things;
- Up to 20 chords and how to move your fingers around the fret board quicker!!!
- Expand your strumming techniques (including muting and the four finger strum)
- A bit more finger picking, a few bar chords and riff playing
- More basic musical tab and musical notation (notes)
- The notes on the ukulele in the home position (i.e. the first four frets)
UKULELES: We can lend you a uke in the first few weeks until you find one you like. We have some good basic models for sale as well as tuners and books.
TEACHER: Danielle Scott
