Tomorrow's (Monday's) class and Tuesday's class are "iffy" due to a predicted "Wind Event" in Southern California because Edison's notification that they are reserving the right to turn off our electricity. Then, on Wednesday, I believe I will be too distracted watching the inauguration to lead ukulele. Stay positive! Hold your ukulele close to your heart and believed in good people and good times together. We will carry on! :)
The PDF below is the form Students can use to keep track of the songs we are learning for our current semester: Winter 2020-2021
If you have been participating since the beginning of the Fall Semester, please take the time now to asses where you are at with the 14 Fall Songs, see form below, because we have moved on to SIX new Winter Semester Songs. Yipee!
Help Session for New Players today: 1:55 - 2:15pm PST
Join us for the "Help Session." Get help with what is tricky for you. Let's review & practice the "C scale" a bit!
Also, students can print out for themselves the two PDF's below: "Keyboard-My colorful creation" and "Keyboard & Fretboard Octaves." These two documents will help you begin to understand how our ukulele playing fits in to many other musical terms you have heard, and will hear.
Beginner Class: 2:15pm - 3:05pm PST:
Wednesday we began learning the "Fan-Island Strum" that we are using in "Dream Lover." There is not a document for that strum, however, the pdf for the entire song, "Dream Lover," is below. (It is the working version.)
Also, please print out last Monday's pdf of: "Higher & Higher - Strum Drill," see below. That strum is the regular "Island Strum." We are looking forward to playing our SIX "New" Winter Semester Songs with you today! See all PDF's below. And please contact us with your votes of song titles from our list on the "Beginners" page of this website!
Happy Birthday is left over from our Fall Session:
