WHAT PREVIOUS STUDENTS SAID ABOUT THIS CLASS:
This Zoom course made theory fun. Love that classes were small so there was a sense of community and we all had a chance to participate and share. Anne Ku is warm and lovely as a teacher.
Delightful mix of theory and practice towards developing an 'ukulele repertoire, via online instruction and demonstration in a small class format, which is supported by outstanding course notes and exercises.
Small online class that unravels the mystery of scales, chords, inversions and more, enabling the student to develop a capability to analyze ukulele scores by sight and by ear.
