Introduction to the Ukulele

Description

Come Meet the Ukulele!


The ukulele is one of my absolute favorite instruments to play and this class can get you started! During this session, we will:
  • Learn the names of the parts of the ukulele
  • Learn what a chord is and learn to play a chord
  • Play a chord accompaniment of a simple song
We will learn the following songs and chords during July and August:
  • Septmeber 13, Poor Old Crow (C7 chord)
  • Septmeber 20, Apple Tree (C chord)
  • Septmeber 27,  The Farmer in the Dell (F chord)
  • October 5, Five Little Pumpkins*, (C chord)
  • October 12, Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater. (C chord)
  • October 19, Pumpkin, Pumpkin' (C chord)*
  • October 26, Skin and Bones (A minor chord)
Please note:
  • Students should have a ukulele for class. They can either have a soprano, concert, or tenor sized ukulele.
  • Sometimes our classes make a lot of joyful noise! There are times when everyone is playing (yay!) and the noise causes discomfort for some students. In that event, I will mute microphones to help students be able to hear me better. Please show your child how to mute and unmute him/herself so they can ask me questions! 
  • A tuned instrument is key to a positive learning experience. Tuning is accessible for adults, but young learners almost always need adult guidance. Information will be sent to enrolled students prior to class to support you with the issue of tuning.

  • This class is NOT suitable for guitar or guitalele. 
  • Is your child left-handed? You may want to read this article (click to view)
  • Songs scheduled during October with an orange asterisk * mention Halloween. Skin and Bones does not mention Halloween but has a spooky (but fun) ending. Please contact the instructor at sandra @ category5winds dot com if you wish to see the full lyrics before registration. 

Students should have a soprano, concert, or tenor ukulele.

Reviews and Ratings

  • Colin had a great time in class! He loved the encouraging sound effects and the games to help him practice the notes. Colin can't wait to sign up for more recorder classes. :)
