Join Groundwork Music Project’s ukulele ensemble this spring for an opportunity to build your skills as a ukulele player, a singer, and even as an arranger of music. The program will culminate with student performances in our annual city wide concert at George Washington Carver Museum.
This program is for students who already have some ability on ukulele. You may also be able to join if you have some knowledge on guitar (as many skills are transferable between these two instruments).
In prior years, our students participating in similar programs have learned to play Vivaldi’s Spring, and other classical pieces, as well as original songs and popular standards that are both fun to play, and provide a challenge to the student. Students will get to choose some of the pieces played in this program, and the instructor will help them learn to arrange pieces, (and write their own parts) commensurate to their ability.
We ask students participating in this program to commit to a practice regimen, and to seek assistance outside of ensemble time as needed. We will provide discounted private lessons, as needed, for participants. Students aged 8 to 13 can participate in this program and City of Austin funding will assist with cost.
We want to offer this program at a reasonable basic rate. Students in need, who also exhibit a strong commitment to building their musical skills, may be eligible for full or partial scholarships.
This program will be available to as many as fifteen students. Scholarship availability will depend on both community need and available funds.
10% sibling discount offered when registered at same time.
