Class Info

In this fun class, explore the sophisticated sounds of the jazz uke with Tracy Kim.

Popular jazz standards are used to teach and introduce new chords shapes beyond the 'campfire' open strings chords. The emphasis will be on learning 6th and 7th chord and inversions. Tabs will be used to teach the melodies and also the chords(along with chord grids).

Some of the songs will have easy chord melody arrangements to demonstrate solo uke playing.

Also, some licks and easy improvisation ideas will be shared.

Just as in the traditional uke learning method, please feel free to sing along with these fun jazz tunes.

A song a week will be taught for this course from the following master list:

Jada
I'll See You in My Dreams
It Had To Be You
Tonight You Belong to Me
Dream A Little Dream
Besame Mucho
Blue Skies
Lady Be Good
Sweet Sue
Honeysuckle Rose
Summertime
Watch What Happens
Autumn Leaves
Exactly like you
Take the A train
Rosetta
All of Me
Sweet Georgia Brown
Blue Monk
Fly Me to the Moon
I Can't Believe You're in Love with Me
I'm Confessin'
As Time Goes By

Please bring either a concert or tenor uke for this class. Also, make sure to have a low G string which is more common for jazz uke. Please feel free to email Tracy if you have any questions. Tracytkim@gmail.com
