… the pop-up guitar and ukulele orchestra!
“MOOJU” is short for the Moonlight Junior Guitar and Ukulele Orchestra.
It is an occasional opportunity for my more advanced primary pupils to meet and play together in a larger group.
Participants get their music several weeks in advance, and learn it in their regular instrumental lessons. They then “pop up” to become an instant orchestra, rehearse together and play a concert for parents and friends – all in the space of two hours on a Saturday afternoon!
There are 2 sessions planned for the current school year – 17th Nov 2018 and 16th March 2019. (We’ve found from experience that finding dates in the summer term is just too complicated due to school trips, SATS and whatever).
Please note this group is “invitation only”. Generally participants are around Grade 1 standard or above, though I sometimes invite a less experienced pupil if I see that he/she plays confidently from stave notation and can learn a part quickly.
Other teachers in the area, do contact me if you have a pupil who you think ought to be invited along.
