Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
In this class, students will learn:
♪  the parts of a ukulele (strings, body, neck, frets, sound hole, tuning pegs, etc);
♪  musical terms (strumming, picking, beat, steady beat, strumming pattern);
♪  the names of the strings of a ukulele;
♪  how to keep a steady beat when playing their ukulele;
♪  2 songs they can play straight away;
♪  1 nursery rhyme helpful to develop a sense or rhythm when playing our ukulele.
HELLO THERE!

♪  My name is Bella and I have been a teacher for 20 years. I love teaching music, guitar and ukulele to young children because it gives them a way to FIND who they are, to EXPRESS their feelings, emotions and thoughts and to LET IT GO!

♪  I have found that young children love playing musical instruments, making up their own songs, creating rhythmic patterns and learning a new musical instrument through story-type lessons. I am building each new lesson on their interests and passion, aiming not only to teach them a skill, but to develop a life-long LOVE for music, to SING, CREATE and PLAY the songs from their hearts!

♪  My classes are fun, interactive, small groups of children where each child finds their voice and shines bright! 
Practising 5 minutes a day will help with the development of the hand and fingers and strengthen the muscles required to play the ukulele and press on the frets.

Students can practise the strumming techniques and the chords discussed in class. The teacher will share digital copies of the songs that we learn during our classes so students can practise those songs as well. 
 2 files available upon enrollment
A two-page handout paper with the 2 songs we will learn will be provided. ➡️ Please make sure that students need to have a TUNED ukulele for each class. Please check the course's welcome message to see how you can tune the ukulele. ➡️ Learners can use a pick, but it is not compulsory; I actually recommend the use of fingers for strumming/picking. ➡️ Please make sure you position the student, so I can see their BOTH hands when playing, ideally from the forehead to the waist, in a well-lit room. Ideally, the young learner can sit with their legs crossed on the floor, iPad/laptop on the floor at a slight angle pointing straight or downwards. ➡️ Please feel free to send me a message if you have any questions or concerns. 🎵 The teacher will provide the songs and other files (strumming and chord sheets); 🎵 Students will need a Ukulele (Soprano or Concert Standard tuning G C E A) 🎵 Ukulele Tuner App
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
25 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
This lesson is for students with a soprano, concert or tenor ukulele.
