Ukulele

Brooklyn Ukulele Lessons

Say the word "Ukulele" and most often the response will be laughter -- it's not an instrument
that is taken seriously in most places.  It's more often thought of as comedic.  But, actually,
it is a very serious instrument, an integral part of traditional Hawaiian culture, part with a long
and colorful history!!  And I both take it and teach with the same considerations that I give any
other area of study.

Working within the basic framework of the Total Control Music System, the elements
of ukulele playing are explored, along with specifics of performing them. Specifics related
to various styles of playing are also studied:  Students will learn the different right-hand techniques, good left-hand technique, and part construction for different styles of ukulele
playing. We will also explore the history of the instrument and the various styles of music
in which it is used. Finally, there will also be study of the music and styles of specific artists
and/or material of the student's choosing
