Right now we are learning the basics: how to hold the Ukulele, how to read chord charts, how to press the strings & strum at the same time. Ukuleles will be sent home on a per-song basis. All students will be taught to play every song. Students showing initiative to learn the required chords, will then take the instruments home for extra practice. We will rotate and change these students for every song. The goal is to perform at least one piece using ukulele per concert!


An easy-to-read chord chart showing all the basic Ukulele chords. Divided into 3 types: Major (happy), minor (sad), and seventh chords (jazzy).
