Playing Surf with the new strum pattern, gradually increasing speed
I have taught this song to several ukulele classes and it is always a favorite.  If the student can play it fast, it is a very impressive song to play for family and friends.
Homework Offered
It is recommended that students practice 10-15 minutes per day for 3-4 days per week. Optional practice logs will be provided.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Each student will receive personalized written feedback for each each audio/video recording they submit. Written feedback will include things that they excelled at and things they need to practice.
Grades Offered
The students will need an ukulele that is already tuned to the notes G, C, E and A. 

I will provide a practice log. 

I will also send sections of the song to practice with each lesson and then a 1-page handout with the complete chord progression for "Surf" on it after the 3rd class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
