4-Week Intermediate 1 Ukulele Crash Course | 2 hours per week | £89.99
Join this course if you’ve done both of our beginners courses. Or, if you have played guitar and know all your ukulele chords in 1st position, without over-reliance on chord diagrams, you’re confident with strumming and chord changing and you know how to read tab – you’ve played basic melody already. If that sounds like you, then you’re ready for the intermediate. We’ll unlock the fretboard with moveable chords, and learn more finger-picking melodies. Sound good?
With a maximum of 12 people in a class, this intimate teaching environment will enable you to play moveable chords, learn to finger pick a number of melody lines, and play different strumming patterns and rhythms with your ukulele. You’ll get to know your instrument a bit better, and play your ukulele using different voicing (inversions) of chords. It’s a great way to get out of the ukulele plateau of only playing first position chords. It’ll open up the fretboard a bit, give you some picking patterns, barre chords, and strumming methods. Like the beginners’ courses, you’ll learn 3 new songs each week, with new strumming or finger-picking patterns, and we’ll provide online resources to help you with your practice at home. If you put some time in, in between the classes, you’ll get a lot out of the 4 weeks. This course is a great way to improve your skill, meet new people and have fun.
The courses are held in a pub, so you’re welcome to enjoy a drink (responsibly). The pub is The Sheaf (underground bar in the vaulted cellars of the Hop Exchange, with sofas, big-screen sport, and the classes are in the private rooms past the bar). It is around a 2-minute walk from the tube station if you come out of the Borough Market/Southwark Street exit.
If you put some time in on your own ukulele in between the classes, you’ll get an awful lot out of these 4 weeks as we’ll provide you with resources, backing tracks and in-between class support for you and your new peers. All you need to do is bring yourself, a ukulele and a sense of fun, then practice for at least 10 mins per day between classes. Does that sound good? Then we look forward to getting you strumming! Choose your date from the options above and de-plateau quickly.
