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

Our next 10 week courses starts  September 21st 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,  with music and song charts, practice sheets, and audio samples at different speeds to play along with, it’s very cool! We are so delighted to be able to continue to offer classes during the current situation, and are very excited and happy with how successful they has been! Stay well.

So, Classes will take place Live on-line via Zoom this Fall, in addition to potentially back physically in class 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 neighbor’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! These classes are live, interactive in real-time broadcast from Vancouver, Canada.
So you get to ask questions and participate if you like, and for the sense of relaxation and safety of everyone attending, classes are not recorded, so you can really relax and enjoy your class and appointment to play!
Registration for Fall Classes will open August 16th at 10am!

Fall Ukulele Modules:

10 week  Ensemble module | Eduardo Garcia
Time: Mondays 6pm-8pm (PST)
Date: September 21st 2020 
Cost: $199
Place: Live. On-line. interactive. in the Ruby’s Ukes Ukulele Zoom Room

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.  Whilst we cannot sing together yet, we can play together virtually.  There will a Fall 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 Fall 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.  I am still programing the ensembles and there may be another ensemble class that is based on experience level. Watch this space!
