GROUP CLASSES, WINTER 2020
BEGINNER: 10 am Saturday, starting January 11: "Beyond melody in the key of C" We'll build on our beginning note-reading skills with the harmonized C scale, and some simple strumming songs, including the popular Pixar music video ukulele hit, "Lava". $15 each session. Register on-line or pay at the store each session. Kama'aina rate applies! We will also learn the F scale and sing and strum in the key of F.
INTERMEDIATE: 11 am Saturday, starting January 11: "A midwinter trip to the Islands" Learn the classic Hawai'ian love song Sanoe, written by Queen Lili'uokalani as a young woman. In the key of A, as taught by "Harry of Kailua" on youtube. He'll help us with the pronunciation of the beautiful Hawai'ian language, and Sanoe makes a lovely chord-melody solo. Additionally, we will work on music suggested by students, including "Remember Me; I'm the One Who Loves You" by Stuart Hamblin. $15 each session. Kama'aina rate applies! Register on-line or pay at the store each session.
Beginning and Intermediate group classes are offered Fall, Winter, and Spring. The number of weeks varies but is usually 6 or 12 weeks. *Winter weather can delay or cancel classes.*
Beginning and intermediate ukulele players learn chord-melody with Wendy Schaefer, graduate of the James Hill Ukulele Initiative Teacher Certification Program. Lessons by appointment. E-mail email@example.com to schedule.
"Kama'aina" are students who have completed the Ukulele Orchestra class AND performed in ensemble with the Gorge Community Music Orchestra. These committed players enjoy a special reduced rate for all group sessions they attend... It's something like a "membership".
