A General Music Ukele Curriculum

Ken Trapp will present ideas and activities for improvisation and ukulele performance. The goal of this class is to help participants understand how general music activities can be naturally sequenced to instrumental performance. The session will also demonstrate how collaboration and differentiated instruction are natural and powerful models for learning. Students should bring a ukulele if possible. Participants will: Learn to sing and play harmony in a linear manner, develop skills to play melodic patterns by ear, realize how aural skill development will lead naturally to music reading, learn to play chord patterns in multiple styles including; strumming, picking, learn vocal improvisation skills that will inform instrumental performance and promote composition, learn to work in groups to create arrangements and accompaniments, learn how to include many styles of music including; folk, rock, classical and the pop music students currently listen to, and develop ways to construct collaborative group work that can create two and three part ukulele choirs.
