Discovering Ukulele Camp (Session 2)

JULY 25 - 29

Camp Description

The Arts+ Discovering Ukulele Camp is the perfect introduction for students interested in learning this fun instrument! This is the perfect camp for new students or students with minimal experience.

Each day will be filled exploring the foundations of the ukulele, learning simple chords and strumming patterns, reading ukulele tablature, as well as basic melodies. The week will close out with a mini-performance of songs learned throughout the camp. By the end of the week, your student will want to start their own ukulele band!

INSTRUMENTS 
Arts+ has ukuleles that the students may borrow during the camp (but cannot be taken home). Campers may also bring their own ukulele to the camp. You can reach out to our camp director with any questions you might have about the instrument. We will be using Soprano Ukuleles, which are standard at approximately 20 ¾ or 21 inches in length. If you are bringing your own ukulele, make sure that you have the correct size, as some Sopranino or “Pocket” Ukuleles which are commonly purchased at the store are too small for our purposes, at approximately 16 inches in length.

END OF CAMP MINI-CONCERT
The students will showcase what they have learned and created this week in a mini-concert on the last day of camp. The showcase will begin at 3 p.m. More information will be sent out the week of the camp.

PREREQUISITES
None! This camp is open to students with no ukulele experience as well as students who have already been playing.
