HELLO THERE!

โ™ช  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!

โ™ช  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!

โ™ช  My classes are fun, interactive, small groups of children where each child finds their voice and shines bright! 
Homework Offered
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.

โžก๏ธ 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. 

โžก๏ธ Learners can use a pick, but it is not compulsory; I actually recommend the use of fingers for strumming/picking.

โžก๏ธ 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.

โžก๏ธ 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 restrict 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.

โžก๏ธ Please bring to the class small stickers (like the ones used for sticker charts: circles and stars): we need a red circle and a green/bright green circle one. 

โžก๏ธ Please feel free to send me a message if you have any questions or concerns.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
