and Dance

Ukulele is an appealing and versatile instrument that enriches the general music classroom. Beginning with “Ukulele Boot Camp,” participants will learn the basics of playing, tuning, reading chord diagrams, and tablature to improve their own playing. As the week progresses, the sessions will explore a variety of pedagogical models for teaching ukulele to a variety of age levels. Teachers should come prepared to make music, move, and learn how to create space in their current curricula for this amazing instrument.

Kate, I so enjoyed your classes and ALL the materials!! I especially am glad to have the Implementation Plan document as I need something like that to help me plan/make decisions. I do the process, but to have everything in one place is calming. I HATE that my life is so crazy right now with my upcoming move--although it was truly a respite to come to your class each day and focus on the ukulele (except for the day that I had to confess to you that I didn't do the homework)!! Thanks!

https://countrymusichalloffame.org/ Here is the link for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum website. The resources and trips and distance learning opportunities and the PD are all under the Education Tab. Its all really great and pretty inexpensive and if you're school qualifies they have scholarships and financial aid and some stuff is free too. So check it out for sure!
