Beyond Beginners Ukulele - Something Old Something New!

$35

with Duncan Perry

Calendar May 7, 2019 at 6 pm, runs for 2 weeks

Get ready to take your ukulele playing to another level with Duncan Perry! Using his song-based approach, you will explore left hand ornamentation techniques including hammering on and slides. The right hand will get a work out as you expand your knowledge of strumming and finger picking by learning such skills as triplets and muting. More chords will be added to your tool box and you will learn how to transpose songs from one key to another. Of course, there will be many laughs along the way. The pace will be geared to the proficiency level of those enrolling. At a minimum, all students are expected to know basic chord formations in the Keys of C and G and be capable of smooth chord transitions. If you love playing the ukulele and you want to enhance your knowledge of this wonderful instrument, this course is a must. Please have a serviceable soprano, concert, or tenor size ukulele, an electronic tuner, a music stand and a passion for playing.

Tuesday, May 7-14, 6-7:30 p.m., 2 sessions

Course Fee: $35

Ukulele for Beginners

$75

with Duncan Perry

Calendar Mar 5, 2019 at 6 pm, runs for 4 weeks

This little instrument is versatile and a blast to play (with a bit of practice, of course). On it you can knock out folk tunes, rock, samba, blues, pop, country, and classical music, as well as songs grandma knows. The ukulele can go most anywhere with you because it’s small and light weight. Duncan, a multi-instrumentalist who has been playing ukulele for 11 years, will teach you to play familiar music using common chords and basic strumming and picking techniques. You do not need to know how to read music.  However, you must have a playable soprano, concert or tenor size ukulele (no baritones please) and an electronic tuner or tuning app on you iPhone or iPad.  If you don’t own a ukulele, please contact the Kittery Adult Education Office for helpful information about buying one. Then grab your uke and get ready for a low-stress, fun musical adventure!

Tuesday, March 5- 26, 6-7:30 p.m., 4 sessions

Course Fee: $75
