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?
Or has it been months since you picked up the ukulele and you need a bit of a refresher?
Ukulele Entrée November 2023
We are running a 5 week Ukulele Entrée Course on Sunday mornings starting 29 October 2023. Please express interest on the form below. The venue is the Carrington Bowling Club. More details below the form.
Expression of Interest for Ukulele Entree
Where? Carrington Bowling Club, 1c Cowper St North, Carrington (first on left over the bridge)
When? 10:00-11:45pm (with a 10 minute drink break – get to know your uke buddies!)
Dates: Sundays from 29 October to 26 November 2023
Teachers: Mark (and maybe John or Jane)
Cost: Five weeks for $125. If you wish to pay for only a few, each session costs $30.
If you decide to attend other ukestras during the week, (which we encourage you to do), then you only pay $10 for these additional sessions, but only if you have paid the upfront $125.
In 5 weeks you learn:
- Up to 15 chords and how to move your fingers efficiently around the fret board
- Strumming techniques (including muting and the four finger strum)
- Some finger picking, a few bar chords and riff playing
- Basic musical tab and musical notation (notes)
- The notes on the ukulele in the home position (i.e. the first four frets)
(And then? Our usual Sunday sessions will resume at the Carro Bowlo – from 10-12midday). et voila! You are in at the ground floor!.
UKULELES: We can lend you a uke in the first few weeks until you find one you like.
Once we have sufficient interest, you can confirm your place by making a direct deposit into our Newcastle Perm account.
