Ukulele for Beginners

Haliburton School of Art + Design

Enrol in Ukulele for Beginners

Course Code: ARTS2190

Whether you have never played the ukulele or have some experience playing but want to develop your musicianship, learn the basic note names and how to recognize them on a music staff, practice plucking a simple melody, and develop your listening skills while playing on your own and in a group. You will also learn how to play basic ukulele chords, and explore some simple accompaniment techniques. Read and play a C major scale, play melodies in the key of C, practice a variety of accompaniment techniques and chord formations, and gain a repertoire of songs. Instruction will work in C6 tuning, using the Ukulele in the Classroom series by James Hill and Chalmers Doane, as well as supplemental material provided by the instructor. A ukulele strung with a low G string is recommended. You are required to bring your soprano, concert, or tenor ukulele. Baritone ukuleles cannot be accommodated.

Some courses require additional textbooks and/or materials. Please visit your campus bookstore in-person or online: Peterborough Bookstore or Lindsay Bookstore.
