The Great American Songbook For Ukulele
Mar 27 - May 8 (6 weeks - no class Apr 10 )
"The Great American Songbook" is a loose term used to refer to a group of classic American popular songs and jazz standards from the early-20th-century. Written by songwriters like Irving Berlin, The Gershwins, Cole Porter, Harold Arlen, Dorothy Fields, Johnny Mercer, Hoagy Carmichael, and more (often for Broadway musicals or Hollywood films), many of these songs have passed into the repertoire of jazz musicians and song interpreters. In this class we'll sample a few of these great songs, putting together simple and effective arrangements to learn and enjoy. Songs will be taught with easier and more challenging options to accommodate a wide range of playing experience.This class assumes at a minimum you already know basic chords like C, D, F, G, A, and you can play and sing a few songs already. This class will be taught in C tuning (GCEA).
The class will be conducted on Zoom. Once you have paid and registered, you will receive information about how to log in each week, and those who need help accessing the technology will be offered resources and orientation to the platform.
You will be provided with song sheets and other materials for taking the course. You will need to supply your own ukulele and be able to tune it to standard C tuning.
