This ensemble is a chance to improve your playing and technique, while learning a wide variety of music specifically arranged for guitar, ukulele and any instrument that can be plucked, in a fun, encouraging environment. Take your playing to another level, and discover the beauty of these instruments played melodically. This is primarily a learning group, where the tutor arranges each part to suit the experience and skill level of the various players and responds to the learning needs of the individuals in the group. No reading ability is required, but reading of tab and notation is developed while playing in the ensemble. New members always welcome. We supply audio tracks to practice with at home.
Flexible payment options and scholarships available.
Please note, a base level of playing ability is required for this course. Beginners welcome, but if you don't yet know the names of the strings on your instrument, can't yet move fluently between at least three chords, then you are what we would call a pre-beginner.
You could book a lesson with Glen and if there is enough demand we will put on a beginners class. Email us to enquire.
