LEVEL 1 and LEVEL 2 SOLD OUT !!!!!!
This 1-day workshop is run by Ian Porter, the certified James HIll ukulele teacher resident at the Dougherty Centre in Chatswood, on Sydney's lower North Shore. Ian is assisted by other James Hill certified-teachers who will guide you through an intensive tutoring session based on your skill level (Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3) covering three mulit-part instrumental pieces. In the afternoon you will be combined with the other players for a rehearsal as a full ensemble. The day wraps up with a recording of your performance.
All music is provided 1 month in advance, so you can start to practice your part. The actual workshop outcomes will provide understanding of what it means to be part of a structured orchestra, understanding conductor instructions and signals, listening critically to the other parts in the orchestra and how your part fits in, as well as exposure to three different genres of music arranged specifically for ukulele.
Ukuleles of all sizes in standard C6 GCEA tuning are welcome. Limited baritone ukulele parts in GCEA will be allocated but please contact us prior to booking. Please visit www.ianportermusic.com.au for pre-requisitis for each skill level. NOTE: THIS IS NOT AN EVENT FOR ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS (ie never played before)
Registration is at 9:00 with the rehearsals starting at 9:30am sharp. There will be a 1 hour lunch break, where you can wander through to Chatswood Mall and source food, then a session in the afternoon, with the final recording and performance concluding the workshop. Morning and Afternoon refreshments will be provided.
