The Hawaiian native ukulele is the perfect first instrument for your little one! With only 4 strings and small size, it's the best pick for young children just beginning their musical journey. The ukulele is much simpler to play and understand. Once the basics are mastered it is an easy transition to guitar. Ukulele lessons will introduce basic music theory, memorization of chords, songs, along with music reading skills. Ukulele is just guitar's smaller, easier to play (and more fun!) cousin, making it the perfect choice for your Little Treblemaker!
A great choice for the 6-10 year old who may have already mastered ukulele/piano, or simply has some understanding of musical concepts! This instrument is bigger in size and requires more hand-eye coordination and finger strength than the ukulele. Children will have fun learning songs of their interest, whether it be traditional sing-a-longs, The Beatles, or Taylor Swift (reading tablature) start to finish using chords, single note melodies, and basic rhythms.
Piano is a wonderful precursor to all other instruments and provides a solid musical foundation for any child. Students as young as 4 years old can begin exploring on piano with ease. These lessons provide an early understanding of note names and values, learning how to read music on the grand staff, and confidently playing fun songs. Now, let's put those little fingers to work!
This class is all about FUN! FUN! FUN! Perfect for ages 2 1/2 - 5 who may not be quite ready for an instrument yet. The children will be introduced to beginning music theory through songs, games, rhythm sticks, shakers, and other percussive instruments for hands-on exploration fun! I will also evaluate when each child may be ready to progress to ukulele by slowly introducing them to the instrument in time.
