Ukulele for continuing beginners
Ukulele for advanced beginners 
 

UPDATED 3/30/2020
With the increased severity and spread of the Coronavirus pandemic, Blackstone River Theatre must follow local, state and national guidelines and remain closed until further notice. There will be NO CLASSES in April, May, or June. We hope to resume our full class schedule in Fall 2020.

 
Blackstone River Theatre will also offer a four-week UKULELE class for CONTINUING beginners with instructor Armand Aromin on Thursdays, May 7, 14, 21, 28, and June 4 and 11, from 6:30-7:20 PM. This small, group class needs a minimum of five students, with a maximum of eight. Fee is $90 per student per six-week session. This class is designed for the continuing beginner student (taken one or two sessions) who has gone from simply owning a uke to learning how to play one. We'll continue to work on topics referenced above in the beginner class, but also learn fingerpicking patterns, alternative chord voicings, transposition, and, of course, further methods for pushing the Rhode Island music agenda... Must bring a ukulele to class!
 
Blackstone River Theatre will additionally offer a four-week UKULELE class for ADVANCED beginners with instructor Armand Aromin on Thursdays, May 7, 14, 21, 28, and June 4 and 11 from 7:30-8:30 PM. This small, group class needs a minimum of five students, with a maximum of eight. Fee is $90 per student per six-week session. This class is designed for the advanced beginner student (who has taken 2-3 sessions or has other experience) who has played uke and has the basics down and now wants to learn more advanced technique as well as new songs. We'll continue to work on fingerpicking patterns, alternative chord voicings, transposition, and, of course, further methods for pushing the Rhode Island music agenda... Must bring a ukulele to class!

Armand Aromin
 is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, dancer, and violin maker who strongly believes in discovering one's local musical history. His Providence-based duo, The Vox Hunters, have just published their first book of old music from Rhode Island entitled The Ocean State Songster, volume I.
