Ukulele: Beyond Beginners (Online Class)


with Duncan Perry

Take your ukulele playing to another level! Using a song-based approach, you will explore fretting hand ornamentation techniques including hammering on, pulling off and slides. Your strumming hand will get a work out as you expand your knowledge of strumming and finger picking techniques. In addition, more chords will be added to your ‘tool box’. Of course, there will be many laughs along the way and you will definitely need to practice. At a minimum, all students are expected to know basic chord formations in the Key of C and be capable of smooth chord transitions.
