This class is taught by uke master, Tom Sandahl.  He is one of the very finest teachers in town for children(and adults) and we are so excited to have him at the school!

The ukulele is a great instrument to have a child play. The sound(so cute!), the size(so portable!) and most importantly, so much FUN! Tom will start with the anatomy of the instrument, how to hold, tuning, basic chords(especially the one finger easy chords at first), and then get kids strumming and singing fun and easy from the yesterday to current day.  This not only builds their confidence, self-discipline, and self-esteem, but will bring them much joy to play music with others and also for themselves!

Tom will use songs some children songs and hymns to begin the journey and then by artists such as Bob Dylan, Beatles, Greenday, Ed Sheeran, and other popular artists like Taylor Swift and Train(Hey Soul Sister!). Also, Tom will teach some “lead’ melody and riffs, which kids always love to play(and share with parents at home) and strum patterns. Tom is honored to introduce and share his experience and knowledge with your children during their first musical experience.

Especially for the beginner, a special focus on basic techniques, fingerings, and rhythmic mastery will be reinforced by Tom.  He will demonstrate the importance of proper practice techniques thoroughly.  At this stage, it is crucial to develop good habits at a young age as to avoid future injuries from poor technique. 

These are small group classes.  We cap them at 8 students per class.  This allows for high quality instruction from our experienced faculty.  

This class runs every Friday from 9/20 thru 10/25, 3:30-4:20pm
