Description

Class Experience

Students will learn and improve upon their musical ability with playing the ukulele during each class, while memorizing chord fingerings and strumming techniques in a fun and friendly environment. As this is an ongoing course, the learning objectives will NOT build upon previous weeks' course material. Singing is heavily encouraged, although it is not necessary a part of the curriculum (songs/melodies will be taught and singing or humming the tune is helpful to beginner students). 
Practice the chord fingering and strumming techniques discussed in class, as well as practice playing songs that we learn during our lessons. Students can either screenshot the lesson content or they can request a copy of a song/material from the teacher to use for practice between lessons.

*Ukulele (Note: The teacher uses a "soprano" ukulele, but any real ukulele instrument will be acceptable. However, please note that the tone/pitch of the student instrument may be slightly different than that of the teacher.) *Ukulele Tuner (digital device or app version)
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
All songs and music featured in the course will be "clean" and strictly child-appropriate (PG) in content and theme. 
If you do not have a physical/digital tuner device for your instrument, a ukulele tuner app is highly beneficial (and free). I use one simply called "ukulele tuner" from the Apple store; it has a mint green background and over-sized white letters that spell "uku-lele". They can also purchase a small, clip-on tuner from Amazon or their local music store/department.
