A Ukulele Curriculum from Beginner to Advanced

The ukulele has become a very popular and user-friendly instrument for children. Teachers are often not sure how to get students up and running on the instrument in a musical way.

This session will present simple ideas and activities for connecting students’ natural music making with ukulele performance. The goal of this class is to help participants understand how general music activities can be sequenced and connected to beginning ukulele lessons. The class will also demonstrate how collaboration and differentiated instruction are natural and powerful models for learning.

Participants will: Learn to sing and play harmony in a linear manner; develop skills to play melodic patterns by ear; learn to play chord patterns in multiple styles that include strumming, picking, claw hammer; learn to work in groups to create arrangements and accompaniments; learn how to include many styles of music including folk, rock, classical and the pop music students currently listen to; read TAB to play melody, harmony and solo ukulele arrangements.
