The Langley Ukulele Association is proud to be launching a new initiative during the 2019-2020 year. As of September two Learning Groups have been formed, made up of children aged 8 to 11 years old. These students meet each week and receive instruction which leads to music literacy through playing the ukulele and singing. The classes are taught by members of the Senior A Langley Ukulele Ensemble under the supervision and guidance of Mr. Peter Luongo and with assistance from Mr. Jamie Thomas.
Many of the members of the program received an introduction to the Association and the ukulele by attending our annual Summer Uke Camp. These classes are intended to take beginner and/or novice level players and provide them with a sequenced approach to learning. It is hoped that through this program many of these children will audition and potentially join one of the Association’s three ensembles. The students are taught songs which introduce them to concepts such as strumming, singing, playing by ear, and reading music notation. The program also teaches them concepts of melody, harmony, rhythm, and includes beginning level theory instruction. This program runs from September until the end of April.
The groups currently meet at Willoughby Elementary School (20766 80th Avenue, Langley) on the following days and times:
Tuesdays from 4:00pm - 5:30pm or
Wednesdays from 4:00pm - 5:30pm
Enrollment is limited, but spaces are still available at this time. Registration fee is $350.00 for the 8-month program.
