Class Description:

Jazz up your uke playin’ skills(and chords) with this “easy” version of Tracy’s popular Swing/Gypsy Jazz/Blues course.  This fun term is all about jazz classics(and a few Latin classics)!  All levels are welcome to join, some previous experience is recommended.

This is all about having fun strumming, singing and developing a repertoire of classic swing songs.  We will use basic chords and some fancy chords.  Tracy will explain and demystify the “jazz” chords.  Students will no longer be confused by all those fancy chord names! You will also learn how to create intros and endings and a few jazzy licks, too!

Tracy will teach you classic jazz tunes from the swing era choosing from the following list:  

All of Me
Dream A Little Dream
It’s Only A Paper Moon
Tonight You Belong To Me
Autumn Leaves
Fly Me To The Moon
On The Sunny Side of the Street
Ain’t Misbehavin’
Pennies From Heaven
Don’t Get Around Much Anymore
It Had To Be You
I Can’t Give You Anything But Love
Blue Skies
Besame Mucho
Exactly Like You
I Can’t Believe You’re In Love With Me
