Time & Location
About the Event
Little Ukes is for children ages 3-5yrs who have outgrown the mixed age classes but are still too young for private lessons. Curriculum includes some familiar instruments and songs from the Little Roots repertoire, and the children also learn to sing and play familiar folk songs on the ukulele. They might learn one chord or two chords, how to keep a steady rhythm, and how to listen and play along with other kids. The classes are fun, hands-on, and interactive. We focus on rhythm, pitch, melody, and dynamics through musical games and activities. The students learn basics like parts of the ukulele, how to hold, how to strum in different ways, names of strings, through, playing, moving and lots of ukulele jamming! Students must be accompanied by an adult during class. Ukes will be provide for in class use. We suggest at least one session of the mixed age Little Roots class as a prerequisite for Little Ukes.
