This course is for students in the beginning stages of learning to play ukelele. In each meeting, we will practice playing, learn a song, and review topics related to instrument care and reading music. Over the four meetings, students will learn four chords that they will use to play four different songs. We will learn one new song each week in addition to reviewing songs from previous weeks. Song for this class come from the repertoire of world folk music. Here is a sample of the songs that...
Students who attend all four sections of class will: - learn the names of the parts of the ukelele. - learn how to properly hold and care for the ukelele. - play multiple chords on the ukelele over the course of our meetings. - accompany songs on the ukelele using one and two different chords.
Sandra Girouard first became curious about the ukulele in 1997, after attending an Orff-Schulwerk conference and meeting school teachers from Hawaii. She came home, bought a soprano, concert, and baritone ukulele and never looked back. Ms. Sandra is a Level 2 JHUI certified teacher through the James Hill Ukulele Initiative (https://www.uketropolis.com/jhui). In addition, Ms. Sandra hold both a Bachelor of Music degree and a Master of Arts in Education.
Students are encouraged to practice new songs daily and review songs from previous class sessions.
a soprano or concert ukulele (23 inches or smaller) a digital tuner (preferable) or parental access to GuitarTuna. GuitarTuna is great because, like a digital tuner, it listens to your ukelele and tells you whether a string is in tune when you play it. In order to do so, it will need access to your microphone (in order to "hear" your ukelele). A digital tuner is preferable, but GuitarTuna is a good substitute. All ukelele tuning should be done by the parent. It is not advisable to have a young child turning tuning pegs (which tighten and loosen strings) until they have guided experience with a teacher.
1 hour 40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
