Lesson Sheet


Classical Music Excerpts

  • Classical music pieces can be VERY long! So we are going to learn some shorter versions, or 'excerpts.'

  • You may recognise some of the tunes?

  • Perhaps you've heard them on the television or at a church wedding service?

  •  Classical Music is also a bit hard on the ukulele so practise well and read the tab notation carefully!
