Intro to Chord Melody

Thursdays 7-8:30 pm 9/19, 10/3, 10/17

Learn the art and science of playing chords and melody simultaneously as if two ukulele players were playing at the same time! This is a timeless style of playing that enhances every uke players toolkit. We will learn some melodies and some chords and then put them together. If all goes as planned, we will learn to create some simple chord melody arrangements ourselves! (This Series is a perfect kick-start to the Applied Chord Melody Workshop Series on Saturday!)

Beginner-Intermediate  $95 for 3 sessions ($105 Regular Price)

Blues on Ukulele

Thursdays 7-8:30  11/7, 11/21, 12/5

Discover the distinctly American form of music that spawned Jazz, Rock'n'Roll, Rockabilly and more. Of course, Blues is a deep and powerful genre unto itself. Ukulele is well-equipped to unlock the chords, scales, riffs and rhythms of the blues. We will study some history of the genre in addition to focusing on songs and artists.

Master Series:The Ukulele Stylings of Lyle Ritz

Saturdays 2:30-4 pm 9/21, 10/5, 10/19

**NEW** These 3 Workshops will explore the playing and musical path of the legendary Lyle Ritz!  His storied career includes 2 Jazz Ukulele albums from the 1950's to arranging the ukulele (and performing it) to Tonight You Belong To Me from the movie The Jerk. A true innovator of the instrument, Ritz has left us much to delve into for these workshops. Our focus will be to tackle 3 of his tasteful and challenging arrangements.

Intermediate-Advanced  $95 for 3 sessions ($105 Regular Price)

This Workshop Series will take us beyond basic chords into more complex sounds that evoke Jazz, Classical and Modern music trends. The Workshops will explore a variety of arrangement styles and encourage students to play them. We will use these skills to create our own chord melody arrangements! (This Series is a perfect follow-up to the Intro to Chord Melody Workshop Series on Thursdays!)
