Would you like to improve your ability to play ukulele and sing solo and with others?
Come jam with us …
BUMS is planning a jam leaders course designed to build performance confidence. The aim of the program is to develop your skills so you can create and lead a set at a jam. Playing at jams is a great stepping-stone to performing at a wider range of events.
The proposed program would run over 12 weeks and require fortnightly attendance at six weekend workshops. You will be expected to complete practical and theoretical ‘homework’ between workshops. You will also be encouraged to collaborate with others to plan and lead a set.
The workshops will cover:
- planning a set for a jam,
- formatting songsheets using the BUMS standard format
- basic singing skills
- playing ukulele for jams
- setting up and using PA equipment
- lots of practice in playing in front of a small crowd.
Call for Expressions of Interest
BUMS is seeking expressions of interest from members who would like to join the program. If we have enough interest, we can move to develop the program further.
We are also seeking expressions of interest from members with performance experience who are willing to present segments or mentor the participants during the twelve-week period.
