Prerequisite: Brand-New Beginner Class (or equivalent experience)
Ah! You’ve been flea bitten; ukulele smitten! You’ve graduated from “can I do this?” to “heck yeah; give me that thang!” Beautiful, musical landscapes await! In this class, you’ll expand both your chord and strumming repertoires enough to create a solid beginner foundation. Confident chord changes are still our top priority, but strumming is given it’s due. You’ll learn to adjust chords for songs to fit your singing range. After 6 weeks, you’ll be able to play 150+ songs in the MAUI Beginner Songbook.
Consider taking the Continuing-Beginner class if you 1) took Brand-New-Beginner and really enjoyed it 2) have played other stringed instruments before ukulele 3) enjoy a slightly quicker learning pace than Brand-New-Beginner 4) would like to play additional song keys to better fit your voice 5) want a solid beginner foundation to confidently participate in MAUI Beginner Sing-Alongs.
TECHNICAL: This class expands chord repertoire from 7 to 22 shapes, spanning 4 popular ukulele keys, and expandsstrum repertoire from 5 to 10 basic patterns. Strumming receives more attention than Brand-New-Beginner when using the 7 basic chord shapes, but is de-emphasized when exploring new chord shapes.
