Autumn 1 Term Scheme and Activities
Instrumental Work Technique
In this first term the children will be learning how to handle the ukulele carefully. How to get it in and out of their cases. The children will be asked NOT to mess with the 'tuning pegs!'
The children will learn how to hold the instrument when playing it sitting down.
The children will begin learning a repertoire of pieces on the ukulele reading lyrics and chords from music;
The children will develop the ability to play and sing together, while keeping a steady 'Tempo.'
Children will develop their listening skills, listening to excerpts from Classical and Modern Music. They will begin to get an understanding of music drawn from different traditions and from great composers and musicians. This will help them develop an understanding of the history of music.
The children will begin to develop strength and movement in their left-hand fingers. This will lead to a better 'Stopped' sound - NO CHICKENS!
But most of all, the children will begin to understand how much fun you can have with this little box of wood!
