Uke can play this summer for credit! The ukulele is a popular and easy-to-learn instrument that any school-aged student (or adult!) can use to meet music standards. We'll cover everything you need to know before purchasing, teaching, and maintaining your ukulele program. After finishing this workshop you will have lesson plans and the information you need to start your ukulele program in August!
You will learn to play 3 ukulele chords and the C Major scale. You will also learn about local performance opportunities for yourself and your students. We will discuss considerations for buying, maintaining, and repairing ukuleles, and learn about many different resources to create a lesson plan to use with your beginners for a final project.
Bring your own ukulele or borrow one from Damm Music Center!
Thursday Session 1: Intro to the ukulele instrument, resources for teaching, instrument maintenance and care.
