Session #2 Descriptions

Advanced Ukulele – Learning to play melody, harmony and rhythm all at once makes the ukulele a beautiful solo instrument. Delegates learn countless concepts that transfer to both contemporary (guitar, keyboard etc.) and traditional (brass, percussion and vocal) instruments preparing them for future music ministries.

Adult Timbrels – This class is designed for delegates to learn a choreographed routine to a song using a traditional Salvation Army percussion instrument, the timbrel. This group uses different movements to create both a visual performance as well as creating different percussive sounds which add to the music.
