Description

Class Experience

I have 38 years of experience as an instrumentalist and 20 years as a music therapist, including in preschool settings and 0-3 Early Intervention settings. I enjoy teaching all different types of learners.
This is a one-time course, but students will likely need to practice the skills regularly at home with a parent before taking the next course in the series, or accomplish the practice by taking this course multiple times until skills are mastered. 
Students need to have a ukulele and arrive at class with it WORKING and IN TUNE. Please see the blog post I made detailing how to purchase/acquire a ukulele and how to set it up for your first lesson: http://bit.ly/ukulelesetup For this class, please bring two small stickers or pieces of tape, which we will be putting on the fingerboard. Small stickers such as stars or similar stickers meant for reward charts work well, as do notebook reinforcements. Clear tape can work, but should have a cut-out piece of paper under it so it is visible. Colored tape, duct tape, or other opaque tape works -- just cut it small enough that it can fit between the frets on the ukulele. TO SET YOUR STUDENT AND DEVICE UP FOR THIS CLASS: 1) Please put your device in GALLERY VIEW once you enter the live Zoom session. This is found at the top of the Zoom screen. Gallery view allows students to see each other and the teacher all simultaneously, which leads to better peer interaction and student comfort, and minimizes distractions of the speaker view changing. 2) I recommend turning off self view (click the three dots on the student's own image in gallery view, then select this option), as this helps students reduce left/right reversals and minimizes the distraction of wanting to make faces in the camera, watch themselves dance, etc. I have also had many older individuals with sensory differences or social anxiety tell me that the self view is overwhelming. 3) Please position the player so that I can see both of your hands when you are holding the ukulele. Ideally I will be able to see approximately from the forehead to the waist. Some setups that tend to work include tilting laptop or iPad downward from normal, scooting the chair away from the desk/device a bit, or sitting on the floor with a laptop on a chair in front of you and angled slightly downward.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Popular, folk, rock, musical theatre, etc. songs may be used. All songs will be "clean" and appropriate for children, but families who steer clear of particular genres should be aware.
