Nina Simone Class
This term we have been learning the ukulele with Hugo and Emmy.
We started by learning the names for all of the parts of the ukulele with help from the song My Ukuklele has a Body:
My ukulele has a body,
A neck and a head,
But it’s got no arms and legs!
A neck and a head
It has a bridge and a sound hole,
A fretboard and a nut.
Four strings and tuning pegs.
A neck and a head.
As we all know, ukuleles have a habit of going out of tune quite quickly. If you would like to tune your ukulele at home, try to tune it to this Youtube video.
Simone Class have also become great strummers through learning the song That Thumb Brush Strum.
Have a go at home!
There once was a man in Tennessee
Kept cookies in his ukulele
Now cookies are such crumble things
He dropped some crumbs all over the strings
Brushing the strings with his thumb
