How Outschool Works
Don't see a time that works for you?
Has your child tried to learn the ukulele but didn't go too far? This 6-week mini-course is designed to teach students how to play their ukulele with information broken down into small chunks, so they don't find it overwhelming. Also, I included a variety of nursery rhymes and pop songs that children recognise and enjoy singing and playing. This ukulele beginners class is enjoyable, interactive and learning is happening combined with lots of fun and giggles. I look forward to meeting you in...
Students will improve their musical abilities, in general, and will also learn: - how to play the ukulele, sing and strum at the same time; - how to hold a ukulele; - correct playing position; - proper hand position; - how to count and play chords (C Major, F major, G Major, C7, G7, Am); - how to strum. - how to read TAB and play songs Other skills children will learn in this class: - strum at different tempos (fast and slow) - strum with different dynamics: loud, quiet, from quiet to loud building momentum; - how to follow chord patterns; - how to play multiple children's songs.
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!
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.
➡️ Please make sure that students need to have a TUNED ukulele for each class. Please check the classroom's welcome message to see how you can tune your ukulele. ➡️ Learners can use a pick, but it is not compulsory; I actually recommend the use of fingers for strumming/picking. ➡️ In order for me to give feedback and see clearly the learner while playing their instrument, please make sure you position the learners, so I can see their BOTH hands when playing, head to the waist, in a well-lit room (the light coming from their front, not from the back). The young learner can sit on the floor, with their legs crossed. If they are joining from an iPad/laptop, they can also be on the floor or a little stool, it can point straight or downwards. ➡️ Please note that the learner can't sit on an armchair as this will restrict the way their instrument needs to be positioned and also restricts the movement of the learner's arms. A chair with no arms, or a stool are recommended. Both learner's feet should be on the floor, not hanging. ➡️ 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 chords sheets); 🎵 Ukulele (Soprano or Concert Standard tuning G C E A) 🎵 Ukulele Tuner App
Each Student will be informally assessed by the teacher during each lesson and will be given pointers on what to practise, how to correct or what to modify so their playing technique improves with each session.
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
