This term we are running a four week trial of ukulele classes before school on Thursday mornings at Belmont Christian College, with classes targeting children in Years 3 and 4, although Other ages can inquire. We will start with the basics of ukulele playing, both melody and chords, and aim to have children reading music on the ukulele.
If popular, ukulele lessons will continue in 2016.
This model of teaching successfully runs in a number of schools in the Lower Hunter.
Please register your interest (see form below) as we need a minimum of 8 children/class to run this course (maximum 10).
TIME: Thursday mornings from 8:20 to 8:50am. The classes will run for 30 minutes within the school grounds.
DATES: 29th October, 5th, 12th, and 19th November
COST: $40 for the term
UKULELES FOR LOAN: We can loan your child a ukulele in the first few weeks and the school also has a supply of ukuleles. However best results are achieved when children can practice at home on their own ukulele. We recommend you buy a cheap but good quality uke (around $60 will get you a Makalas or MyLehos). We sell these brands or you can buy them from Muso’s Corner (City), Jack’s Music (New Lambton) or Warners Bay Music Solutions. Please don’t buy anything for under $30, they can’t be tuned!
