Ukulele Lessons

Since September year 2 have been learning to play the ukulele. We have had a specialist teacher from the London Borough of Hillingdon Music Service help us to play this new instrument. 

First, we learnt the parts of the instrument, these included: the strings, the tuning pegs, the sound hole and the fret (the neck of the ukulele). It's really like a small guitar.

After we learnt the part we started to learn chords. We have to place our fingers onto different part of the fret while strumming on the strings. The chords we learnt were C, A minor, F and G. Once we became a bit more confident, we started to learn some songs. The first was Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, then yellow Submarine by the Beatles and after that we learnt We Will Rock You by Queen. It has been so much fun.
