Children's Music Center
of Jamaica Plain
Ukulele (5-7 yrs)

This 45-minute class with teacher Christy introduces the Ukulele in a fun and relaxed class setting.  Using color coding, kids learn to strum easy one-finger chords while singing well-known children's songs, and will learn a simple melody on one string, while also exploring basic rhythmic notation in an age-appropriate context. Activities involve singing, movement, drumming and music games, allowing kids to continue music development while enjoying the challenge of incorporating this fun instrument into their music learning.  Though concepts taught remain the same, songs and activities will vary each term, so class can be taken twice.  We provide ukuleles for use in our classroom, however, families are encouraged to purchase a ukulele for at-home use.  Parental participation in class is encouraged for kids under 6 years, but is optional.  However, at weeks 3, 6 and 8, we will invite all parents & caregivers into our ukulele circle for the last 15 minutes of class.  This will help you to be your child's learning partner at home. Maximum class size:  6 students.
