Artichoke Music, 2007 SE Powell Blvd, Portland
$30 per session, or $80 for all three workshops.
Register in advance—we’ll send you all the parts to a sprightly ragtime piece that we’ll polish over all three sessions. Music is written with standard notation and tab, and a part with chords. Skill levels from confident beginner to advanced. Ukuleles from soprano to baritone.
Play Well With Others — How is an ensemble different from a song circle or a sing & strum performance group? We’ll play various types of music in 3 or more parts. Nancy’s fun, easy arrangements will include both music notation and tab, plus chords.
We’ve Got Rhythm — We’ll play popular rhythm patterns used in old and new music alike, and learn how parts fit together for a lively toe-tapping experience for both players and listeners.
Make Your Own Party — You can create your own three- or four-part arrangement of your favorite melody. We’ll explore three simple methods.
