Homework OfferedThe students will be required to practice 60 minutes per week. They will have the opportunity to send me audio/video recordings each week for assessment purposes.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments OfferedEach student will receive personalized written for each each audio/video recording they submit. Written feedback will include things that they excelled at and things they need to practice.
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 weekly sections of the song to practice and then a 1-page handout with the complete tabs, notes and chords for "Wipe Out" on it after the 3rd class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
