Playing and Teaching Ukulele
The ukulele has become one of the most popular instruments in music education, and with good reason: It’s inexpensive, portable and user-friendly for both teachers and students. This course covers everything you’ll need to know to start using the ukulele in your classroom, including uke anatomy, tuning, types and features, how to read chord diagrams, strumming patterns, popular chords and chord progressions. Suitable for absolute beginners through intermediate players. This course is asynchronous.
*Students enrolled in the MMEd degree program at VanderCook may register for this course at the 500-level through the student portal. Please contact Dean Sinclair at [email protected] if academic advising is needed.
