Description

Class Experience

Students will learn songs that use chords from the G, A, and D chord families (as well as C and F). 
Students will improve their facility in switching between chords during songs.
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 should practice daily. The amount of time needed will vary according to student skill and interest level. Students should practice the song newly introduced, then review any songs from previous class weekly sessions.
- a soprano (20 inches), concert (23 inches), or tenor (26 inches) ukelele. Please note: This course is NOT suitable for a baritone ukelele (30 inches). The instructor will use a 23-inch concert ukelele. - a digital tuner (preferable) or access to GuitarTuna. Like a digital tuner, GuitarTuna "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.
25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
All learning materials (videos and printable notation) will be produced by the instructor.
