Ukulele Classes for Waldorf Students: Level Two

USD $120.00

Recommended Ages: 9 and up

This is level two. You can register for level one HERE.

Teacher Dan makes learning ukulele simple, clear, and fun in these musical living lessons. He teaches us everything we need to know to pick up, play and grow. Finger placements are clear and close up. We even get to see the chords right on the screen with a green line in time for easy following along. Each video teaches us more about the ukulele, includes exercises reading tablature (tab), and leaves us with practice work until our next time. Teacher Dan goes beyond just playing the ukulele and brings us into a deeper understanding of music as a whole, which can carry over into playing any instrument in the future. We’re encouraged to practice and get comfortable with what we’ve learned in each video before moving on to the next one.

Lesson three teaches us that music is like learning a new language as little by little we pick up pieces and can use more and more over time. We experience a new type of note while reading music, the 1/8th note. We review chords and chord progressions, and the C major scale. As we work on a new chord progression similar to last time we begin with how to take tab and turn it into staff music. Then we get into some real fun with improvisation to create music our own unique music on the spot.
