Step-by-step learning

Ukulele Corner is part of Guitar Corner Academy which has served thousands of musicians around the world with the Cornerstone Method. This method uses structure and progressive materials to fuel the joy of music.

One of the biggest problems you can face when learning music is frustration. It can be an obstacle to enjoyment and ultimately it might cause you to give up. Frustration arises from working on the wrong material. It could be material in the wrong order or given to you at the wrong time, whatever the case it can make you feel like you are not good enough. But its not you, it is the disorganized way you have been learning.

The step-by-step pathway that you find in the Cornerstone Method will guide you on your musical journey with the right materials in the right order. It will help you focus, give you guidance, and motivate you to practice.

What’s in the Course?

Grade 1  – Featuring beginner pieces that help develop your playing and reading skills this level is for beginner players. Each piece has been chosen and placed in a progressive order to let you enjoy playing music and improve your playing at the same time.

Composers include Beethoven, Grieg, Carcassi, Sor and Carulli.

Grade 2 – You will find approachable pieces that are still suited to the beginner player in this grade, however, as each piece progresses you will find new challenges to challenge your skills. New rhythms, chords, and arpeggios will make for a fun and progressive experience.

Composers include Brahms, Paganini, Bach, and Sanz.

Grade 3 – One of the defining characteristics of the classical style is a reliance on finger independence. Developing this skill will allow you to make your ukulele sound like two or even three instruments playing at the same time. Sustaining notes, moving voices, and singing musical lines all require this technique and you will find that the pieces in Grade 3 help you develop it.

Composers include Beethoven, Carulli, and Giuliani.

Grade 4 – By now you should have developed a technique that will serve your musical expression. Take the opportunity to identify any areas that might undermine your efforts as you progress into intermediate repertoire. It is possible that certain “gaps” in your technique or knowledge may have not hindered you to this point but they will become increasingly troublesome in the future.

Composers include Tárrega, Bach, Handel, Milan, and Carcassi.
