Ukulele-For Students

Students,

Every time you practice, you need to tune your ukulele.
Watch the video below to learn how to tune your ukulele:


The best way to tune is by ear. That means that you listen to a note, and turn your tuning pegs until your string plays the same note. 
Tune your ukulele by ear at this website!

If you are having a problem getting your tuner to work and you have an iPad or iPhone at home, you can download a free tuner app. One that I like is called insTuner Lite. It acts the same way as your tuner would. Just adjust your tuning pegs until the screen shows that you are playing the correct note.

Below are some websites you can use to learn songs on your own:
(Keep in mind, if you see G7 or C7, you can substitute the G or C chords instead)

  • Search for your song by artist name or song name
  • Use the "Transpose" down and up buttons until you see ukulele-friendly chords
  • Search for your song by artist name or song name
  • Use the "Transpose" (-2, +4 etc) buttons until you see ukulele-friendly chords
  • Dr. Jill Reese's YouTube Channel
  • Play along to songs with videos that include the chords
  • Dr. A's YouTube Channel
  • Play along to songs with videos that include the chords
  • This one has you open songs in Microsoft Word

If you would like to learn how to pick "Oh How Lovely Is The Evening" and play it as a special small-group part at the Showcase, please practice along with this video. It is flipped so that you can mirror my fingers. Good luck!



Below you will find music from class to practice at home on your ukulele. Enjoy!
