SMARTS Ukulele 2A, Grades 4-12
SMARTS Ukulele 2A, Grades 4-12 (Simon Kenneally)
This fun Hawaiian instrument has captivated audiences with imaginations of island life for years, but it’s not just an instrument you hear on vacation. The ukulele also appears in many recent top radio hits, such as Train’s “Hey Soul Sister” and Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours.” The simplicity of the ukulele makes it a great first step for anyone interested in learning guitar! In this beginner’s class, students will learn harmony and melody relationships, as well as rhythmic structures and coordination. The class will focus on basic chords and rhythm patterns that can be utilized solo or in conjunction with the group. No previous experience is required to attend this class. SMARTS has octopus ukuleles available for sale, on the first day of class for students who do not own a ukulele. The cost of the ukulele is $30 and it comes with a gig bag. There will be SMARTS Ukulele Practice Cards issued and each student must practice a minimum of 4 days a week, 20 minutes each day.
All music students in lessons are scheduled and placed manually by SMARTS staff according to ability level and availability. Enrollment prioritizes students currently taking lessons at SMARTS, then students on the waitlist, and finally new students.
