"Big Strings": Ukelele For Grown-Ups Level 1 (6wk)

Have you always wanted to learn ukulele? Are you yearning to play and sing a few songs, with your friends or with your kids, but aren't sure how to get started? 

If so, this easy beginner class is for you! We'll learn basic chords and strumming patterns, and apply them to some popular folk and children's songs. Come expecting to sing and play your ukelele in class. Don't be shy!

Requirements:

You need to have your own ukelele! I may also add a mandatory book purchase with class - check back for details on that. 

 

 

 

 

Little Wings Parent-Tot Class (14 weeks)

Fun, active music and movement class for kids age 6 months - 4 years with a parent or guardian. Wear comfortable clothing and be prepared to move around a lot in class!

We sing, we dance, we play musical games and a good time is generally had by all. The syllabus includes music and games from around the world, including Latin America, Germany, France, the British Isles, Finland, Africa and more. It's a great way to meet other moms (or dads), and little ones love both the class and the CDs that go with them. Each quarter, we use a different selection of music and your class fee includes a book and CD of the music we will use in class. Parents consistently tell me my CDs are on repeat in their stereo and that they are the only thing their kiddo wants to listen to in the car.

Research consistently shows that exposing young children to music improves their cognitive, language and musical skills later in life. Babies and toddlers have more connective tissue in their brains, and active musical play actually strengthens their brains' white matter, enabling them to interpret musical tones and rhythms better than you or I probably can. Years of teaching music to young children has shown me that kids can more easily hear tonal and pitch differences than adults, and if they solidify that ability now, it will stay with them for life.
