Semester Ukulele Class

In this 15-week course, learners will grow in knowledge and skills used for playing the ukulele.

Class experience

 - Skills in strumming chords and playing melodies on the ukulele
 - Internalization of steady beat and accuracy in the realization of rhythmic figures and meters: 2/4, 3/4, 4/4, quarter notes (♩), eighth notes (♫), half notes (𝅗𝅥), whole notes (𝅝), dotted rhythms, and syncopated rhythms.
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 holds both a Bachelor of Music degree and a Master of Arts in Education.
Homework Offered
Students in this class should practice between 15 and 30 minutes daily, between 5 and 7 days per week.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Grades Offered
 - a soprano, concert or tenor ukulele (23 inches or smaller). If you have  baritone ukulele, **please** contact the instructor prior to enrolling.
 - a digital tuner (preferable) or parental access to GuitarTuna. GuitarTuna is great because, like a digital tuner, it 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. All ukelele tuning should be done by the parents of young children (younger than 9 years old). It is not advisable to have a young child turning tuning pegs (which tighten and loosen strings) until they have guided experience with a teacher.

 - All sheet musics and accompaniment recordings will be developed and provided by the instructor

- All literature (songs) for the course come from the rich wealth of folk and classical music from around the world. Sample titles are listed in the course description.
