Recorder Power Point Lessons
Learning the Ukulele
In the first term of Year 4 pupils learn to play the ukulele as a class. This is a fun and relatively easy to learn instrument. Children will be introduced to ukulele tab notation and develop their rhythmic skills through strumming. Each week pupils will learn new chords, strumming patterns and songs with the aim of being able to accompany their own singing on the ukulele.
Although it is not essential to have a ukulele to practice at home, if you feel you would like to purchase one we use Soprano Octopus Ukuleles at school. I have found these to be a good beginner instrument
Please find below a Power Point which I have created to use during class lessons. I have also added a Youtube link to some wonderful web tutorials which will really help your child's progress. Happy playing!
