Summer 2020 Course Registration
Live | On-line | interactive classes

Our next 8 week course starts  July 13th 2020, look out for Ukulele workshops too and register to get playing! Subscribe to our email list to hear about
priority registration, and Uke Events, as well as additional class times and locations
as they get programmed and announced.  Join us, we’d love to have you in class!

Classes will take place live on-line. Easy to follow instructions will be sent before class. AND there is now a class materials page, it’s very cool! We are so delighted to be able to continue to offer classes during the current situation, and are really excited and happy with how they went for the last term! Stay well.

So, Classes will take place Live on-line via Zoom this Summer and potentially back physically in school if we are able to this Fall. We know that nothing can replace playing together but have observed some great Zoom Room advantages: Everyone gets a front row seat and can see the instructor, you can plink and play along and not disturb anyone, you are not disturbed by your neighbour’s plinking along (!), screen sharing enables clear visuals during class, a class materials page with audio samples, and you don’t have to travel to get there.

Based on the principles of arranging 3 harmonized parts and the fun of the RUO, Ruby’s Ukulele Orchestra, we have created a distilled version for you to enjoy this summer. Whilst we cannot sing together yet, we can play together virtually.  There will a Summer Ensemble page with the written and audio arrangements of all the parts for you to practice along with.

The arrangements taught are vehicles for learning, consolidating your ukulele skills, and having a great ukulele appointment to play this summer that will culminate with a group audio recording with photos (which is optional, phew!). You will need to be able to play the Ukulele proficiently to take this class and read tablature (single note melodies) to get the most out of it.

This is the first time we are offering this ensemble class since the RUO inception so you are welcome to dive in and have a taste!
