Singing & playing – an exercise

with Martin Walter

Saturday 10.30 a.m. - 11.30 am - studio upstairs

When we sing and accompany ourselves on the ukulele, we produce several rhythmic levels at the same time. In this course I will show you a logical way of practicing, with which you will learn step by step to connect these levels with each other. Together we will implement and practice each step in the course. Intelligent practice leads to faster and more focused success.
In addition, I will show the basic uses of computer aided tools in practicing.

Block 2 – Saturday

Arrangement / Cover Version

with Martin Walter

Saturday 12 a.m. - 1 p.m. - studio upstairs

You want to play a piece, but how do you go about it?
Using well-known songs, I show you how to arrange pieces step by step from “very simple” to “complex” and how to approach a piece from different sides: rhythmically, harmonically, formally, stylistically… on one ukulele, on 2 ukuleles, in a ukulele band…
To do this, we always start from the original, think about the implementation on the ukulele and make the pieces our own.
