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.
