Ukulele

Spring 2018 Ukulele Boot Camp

This one-class session is designed to get grownups oriented to the ukulele so they can enjoy self-study with a uke and to facilitate a kid’s casual exploration of the instrument. Optional: children age four and above may attend with the adult taking the class. Please bring your own ukulele.

Ukulele Classes 

Is your five-to-eight-year-old thinking about playing guitar? Violin? Ukulele is a great stepping stone, and a great instrument in its very own right. In a fun, relaxed setting, we include core music activities such as rhythmic movement, singing, percussion, and pre-literacy, along with team turn-taking games. Kids will learn rhythmic strumming plus, if they are able, picking patterns; and three to five chords to accompany songs. They can even learn to play a simple melody! The group will discover important vocabulary for contrasting musical qualities and the major scale. Caring gently for a musical instrument and building relaxed practice habits are foundations for a lifelong love of learning and music-making. Class is delightful and the learning is infectious!

If your school or group of friends pull together six or more children, we can run a ukulele class for you.
