Ukulele Open Strings Jam


This term we have started of our learning journey in music by finding out about the history of the ukulele and how it compares and differs to other stringed instruments. We have learned how to hold the instrument in the best playing position, the string names and also different ways of playing the strings – plucking and strumming. We have learned about the musical staff and how to read music notation and in the video clip below, you can see us playing along with a piece called ‘Open String Jam’.


We have also been composing for ukulele and the photo below shows our class composition using music notation. Our next steps will be to learn to play our composition with an accompanying backing track. We will then be moving on to learn about improvising using the open strings and working on our finger positions to change the pitch of the note.
