Description

Class Experience

→ Please note that this is not a class for a student who has never played the ukulele before. Students should have experience of playing at least 2-3 of the following chords: C Major, F Major, A Minor, G Major, G7 chords. 

→ Please check "My Little Uke Wants to Play All Day - Absolute Beginners Ukulele" to learn some basics: 
https://outschool.com/classes/my-little-uke-wants-to-play-all-day-absolute-beginners-ukulele-LcuwHvwW#usuu5xarZy

→ Skills taught in this ongoing course:
→ different rhythms;
→ mixed/complex strumming techniques;
→ different fingering for more complex chords;
→ different time signatures;
→ fingerstyle picking.

These skills will be repeated.
→ 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!

→ 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!
No homework is assigned. For fast progress, it is recommended to practise your ukulele for 10 mins per day. 
Students can practise the songs learned during the lessons.
→ Please make sure that students need to have a TUNED ukulele for each class. Please make sure you tune your ukulele for this class https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VOuRBjmzAM&t=9s → Learners can use a pick, but it is not compulsory; I actually recommend the use of fingers for strumming/picking. → 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. → 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 restricts 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. → Please feel free to send me a message if you have any questions or concerns. → The teacher will provide the songs and other files (strumming and chords sheets); → Ukulele (Soprano or Concert Standard tuning G C E A) → Ukulele Tuner App
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
