DescriptionIntroduction to the Ukulele
This class is designed to give young children a fun and positive first experience with a musical instrument. Students will learn how to hold and strum the ukulele and some basic technique. They will learn five chords and twelve songs. We will also incorporate percussion instruments and singing activities to provide group music making experiences. They will not have to learn to tune the ukulele, we will do that for them in each class. Purchasing a tuner is optional but recommended if a parent would like to learn how to keep the ukulele in tune. Children will receive songs to play along with at home. Students will not be ready to take the Beginner Classes until they are 8 years old. An approved ukulele will need to be purchased for this class. See the information below about where to purchase ukuleles.
