Ukulele @ Albuera Street – The AUKs
Mr Williams will be offering ukulele classes on Tuesdays at lunchtime this year. This program will be open to grades 2 to 6. The first class starts on 20th February.
Students need to bring along their own ukulele. These can be bought from music shops and cost from $45. Ukuleles that are less than this price are usually toys and are not suitable.
Students will also need to get a plastic folder with inserts to keep their music clean and together. This will be brought along to the lesson each week.
Is your child a righty or a leftie? This is important for knowing the tuning, so ask the music shop to help you have it appropriately strung and tuned. Tuning of ukuleles is so important, so purchasing either a ‘pitchpipe’, or an electric one (e.g., Snark) is recommended. There are free iPhone/computer ones so students should learn to how to tune their own uke and keep them tuned. Parents need to support their students in keeping ukes tuned at home too. Please be vigilant in regularly tuning your child’s ukulele, and/or teaching them how to tune, as tuning multiple students’ ukuleles when class is on is wasted time.
Although an elective, students who would like to join the group must commit to practising at home as so no one is left behind. We can then move on as a group to playing lots of more complex music together.
There are only 15 spots so, first in - best dressed! Last year’s uke players are welcomed back at the beginning of Term 2 to play when the newest students have gained some greater skills. They are, though, truly encouraged to come along (without their ukuleles) and support our new players to learn the basics during this first term.
Come along and be an AUK! [Albuera Ukulele Kids] Mr Williams
