In this onoing class, learners will meet up, work on a specific skill to expand their playing ability through song playing and discuss common interests in playing the ukulele

Class experience

Learners learn strumming and fingerpicking skills, ,elodic licks, and meet other learners with a common interest in playing the ukulele
Sandra Girouard has been a teacher for over 30 years. She first became curious about the ukulele in 1997, after attending an Orff-Schulwerk conference and meeting music teachers from Hawaii. She came home, bought a soprano, concert, and baritone ukulele and never looked back. Ms. Sandra is a Level 3 JHUI certified teacher through the James Hill Ukulele Initiative (https://www.uketropolis.com/jhui).  Ms. Sandra is a member of the Uke Heads project, and has provided recorded tracks (ukulele and vocals) that will be included in the self-titled album due out in 2024.

Ms. Sandra holds both a Bachelor of Music degree and a Master of Arts in Education.
 - Students should have a soprano, concert, or tenor ukulele. A baritone ukulele is not suitable for this class. 
 - Students should arrive with ukuleles IN TUNE. On occasion, it's necessary to retune in class. Students should mute while tuning.
 - For an optimal experience, students should take class using a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet/iPad. While learners will be able to enter class using an iPhone, class materials will be screen shared and can be very difficult to see on small screens.
Important notes: 

 - Students should have their cameras on during class. The instructor must be able to observe the hold of the instrument as well as hand and finger positions in order to provide helpful feedback and assistance in playing. Students who have completed Outschool's Child Learner Verification process (https://support.outschool.com/en/articles/4063624-learner-verification) will not be expected to turn on their cameras. However, parents should consider whether their learners will be able to obtain the most benefit from class. 

 - All learners will be offered oppotunities to play (microphones on) for individual feedback from the instructor. Being able to hear the learner play while seeing the use of hands and fingers gives important information to the instructor and is invaluable for providing feedback. However, no learner will ever be *required* to play in front of their peers; the opportunity to play individually with the microphone on is optional. 

 - All learners should be able to mute and unmute their microphones independently. Make music means generating sound. It is absolutly normal (and even desirable) that students want to try skills while first learning about them. However, the result of a class experimenting simultaneously can be chaotic. While learners are encouraged to have microphones on to ask questions and discuss, they should turn off their microphones (mute) temporarily to practice skills. 

 - Students should turn on "original sound for musicians" in Zoom. This is a two-step process:
1. PRIOR to entering the class, configure Zoom to enable original sound. Here is a link to directions for desktops, laptops, mobile tablets, and mobile phones: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/360046244692-Configuring-professional-audio-settings-for-Zoom-Meetings
2. AFTER entering the Zoom class meeting, turn ON original sound. Once the setting is *enabled*, this allows the original sound function to be turned on and off after entering a meeting. The toggle button is present in the upper left hand corner of a Zoom meeting on desktop or laptop. This link may be helpful for toggling original sound on when using a mobile device: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/115003279466-Configuring-audio-for-music-and-singing
 - materials are teacher developed
 - course will include links to youtube videos featuring original recordings of some songs as well as teacher demonstrations when appropriate
