Ukulele ABC’s: An Introduction to Playing the Ukulele *Small Group Class* (Ages 8-13) Online Music $100.00 - $200.00

  • Ages: Gradeschooler

In this multi-day class, we will begin by learning correct terms (frets, chords, strumming, tuning, etc), identifying the different parts of our instruments, and tuning our instruments. Then we will move on to learning a few basic chords, building in difficulty and intensity as we progress our learning during the entire course. Students will be taught how to strum in different rhythms to match each song tempo (example: down, down, up, down, up…). They will also be playing simple songs from the very first lesson- building in skill level as they acquire more knowledge and chord change fluidity. It is my goal to make the learning process fun, and encourage students to sing and participate by allowing each member to take turns strumming/playing their instrument at appropriate times during the lesson. Music is supposed to be enjoyable, and learning is easier when students are having a blast. I look forward to singing and sharing some tunes with you soon!

**NOTE: Please ensure that the student comes to each class (except perhaps the first lesson) with their instrument tuned. It is imperative that the student has a freshly tuned instrument before practicing or attending a lesson in order to ensure maximum instructional effectiveness and new skill retention.**

Here’s the schedule of events:
Week 1: Parts of the Ukulele Instrument, How to Read Chord Tabs, Intro to the 4 Basic Chords (C,G,Am,F), First Songs
Week 2: Beginner Music with Nature Theme, Easy Strumming Techniques, New Chords (G7, D)

Denise C.

I graduated in 2017 from Georgia Southern University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Arts. I have experience teaching from preschool to high school and beyond, tutoring 1-on-1, teaching groups of 30+, and anywhere in between. I formerly taught with VIPKID for nearly 3 years, was a language and arts/music teacher in Europe for about a year, and have traveled around Europe and the UK. During that time, I taught art, music, and movement/choreography classes locally, where preschoolers and elementary-age students came to learn English and study various topics through theatre and play activities. In the past, I've also taught kindergarten through 5th grade students in a US public school. I am currently a remote-working private teacher. In my free time, I enjoy playing and writing music on my ukulele. I have a passion for all forms of art and the creative process that comes with it. Whatever my current situation may be, I feel motivated to empower young students to realize their academic and creative potential through meaningful play and personal mentorship. I am looking forward to creating fun and productive courses through Outschool and I look forward to seeing you in my classroom soon!
