Thanks for joining us to watch the playback of our recent Virtual RSL On Tour webinars: "An introduction to Rockschool Ukulele", and, "Teaching Technical Ukulele Skills Through Performing".
An introduction to Rockschool Ukulele
This webinar introduces teachers to the benchmarked levels of progression students can expect to reach as they engage with our Rockschool Ukulele graded exam materials. We look at specific examples of the repertoire at Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Level; provide explanations of the assessment criteria and our new digital marksheets; and highlight how the grade system maps across to qualifications in the classroom. We also provide information on the different ways students can take exams with Rockschool in your region and territory.
Teaching Technical Ukulele Skills Through Performing
This webinar will look at the ukulele grades (Debut – Grade 8) and give examples of how to approach the grades in an engaging way to help students develop both their technical mastery and creative expression. We will highlight the relationship between the technical exercises and the performance pieces contained in the graded exam book and look at how particular scales, arpeggios, chords and rhythmic elements support the development of specific pieces. We will also look at how our interactive practice tool, Replay, can be used in lessons as an effective teaching tool.
The ukulele is in a unique group of instruments with re-entrant tuning. The Rockschool Ukulele syllabus (Debut – Grade 8) develops instrument-specific techniques through digestible benchmarked topics guaranteed to equip students with the practical skill and theoretical knowledge to perform at the highest possible level, across a range of contemporary styles.
