If you’re looking for a fun and easy instrument to play, the ukulele is the perfect choice. Students who have acquired the basics of ukulele playing will further their learning about strumming patterns, proper technique and finger movements, fingerpicking patterns, chords and efficient chord changes. Students can contact the instructor regarding purchase of ukuleles, electronic clip-on tuners, and other items. Families welcome to join together. Class size limited to 6 families.
An excellent intergenerational educational and nurturing environment where students gain a strong understanding of orchestral music and develop their ensemble skills. Virtual learning for symphonic repertoire includes weekly rehearsals, sectionals, workshops, discussions and playing assignments. Students come together at the start of rehearsal or at assigned times for each section of the orchestra. Sectional workshops focus on score studying, analysis and form, and interpretation skills. Students learn how to practice more effectively, attain proficiency in their own parts, grasp and appreciate what other players are learning in their parts, and listen to and read from scores. They learn to work with recordings, as a professional recording artist would work with a click track. Weekly projects, which involve listening, practicing and writing, provide a follow-up to lectures and discussion groups. Winners of an annual concerto competition perform in a special concert.
