We’ll cover the notes of the C Major scale and introduce chords and basic strumming concepts to practice for the following week.
Session 2: Strumming & Humming… The second session will elaborate on the previous week’s learning, starting to put together basic melodies & scale patterns. In addition, we will begin more complicated strumming patterns and chords. Some ideas for class projects and classroom use will also be discussed.
Session 3: Ensembles, Ukestra and Q&A In our final session, we will put together the first-ever online ukulele orchestra!
