Intersession: December 6, 13

Prerequisites: Players should be familiar and accomplished with skills taught in the “Ukulele—Intermediate” course. A solid understanding of chord progression and several strumming and fingerpicking patterns will make your Symposium experience more satisfying.

The “Ukulele—Symposium” course will allow you to strengthen your skills in fingerpicking and chord melody. This course will also explore instrumental pieces that rely on those skills to bring the musicality of the piece forward, rather than relying on voice accompaniment. This course will explore contemporary, rock and classical music.

Instructor: Vickie Hite     Coordinators: Leland Akasaki and Linda Callen
