Ukulele

LESSONS BY TALENT

Ukulele Lessons

Despite its synonymous affiliation with the Hawaiian islands, this small guitar-like instrument first arrived on the nation’s shores in 1879, courtesy of Portuguese immigrants. Originally known as a branguinha, the Hawaiian’s later named it the ukulele, meaning “jumping flea”, for the way the hand darts across the four strings while playing. Although modern ukuleles can vary in size and tone, the four most common are the soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone. It is a great starting instrument due to its practical size and affordability.

Beginner classes will teach students how to hold, strum, and pluck the ukulele, as well as play chords and moveable chord shapes. Intermediate classes will explore more advanced chords and strum patterns, and more rhythms , including:

  • Eighth notes, down-up picking
  • More rhythms; dotted quarter, ties, triplets
  • Dynamics, tempo markings, time signatures
Advanced students will learn;
  • Learn different styles
  • Higher position note playing
  • Learn works of J.S. Bach, L.V. Beethoven and others adapted for Ukulele (A Studio Exclusive!)
  • Focus on technical challenges
Students will also learn how to read notes, using both traditional and popular songs, and can choose to participate in Edmonton Academy of Music’s bi-annual concerts.
