Ukulele or Guitar Lessons for Teachers & Librarians

from Musician / Teaching Artist / Songwriter Lloyd H. Miller

Program image

A 12-week course designed especially for teachers, librarians, and other educators who'd like to play and sing songs with their students. Lloyd H. Miller, leader of the critically-acclaimed educational band the Deedle Deedle Dees, has been teaching guitar, ukulele, and bass for over 15 years. He's also led songwriting workshops with every age -- from 3 year olds to senior citizens. He has a well-tested method for teaching new adult learners how to play a stringed instrument with a focus on playing and singing in a classroom environment. Non-musicians and new musicians welcome! Lloyd is very good with people who think they can't sing, people who have never played an instrument, people who have had negative experiences with music lessons in the past, and people who think they're not capable of learning an instrument.

Program Details

Format

1. I'll begin each class with a sing-a-long song. As you and your colleagues progress you'll be able not only to sing this song with me but play it on the guitar or ukulele
2. In Lesson 1, I will teach the strings of the guitar or ukulele and how to tune it. In subsequent lessons (2-12), I will review the content from the previous lesson.
3. I'll teach a new skill or two: how to strum with your fingers, how to hold and strum with a pick, how to play a chord with no fingers on the fretboard, how to play one-finger, two-finger, and three-finger chords, how to read a "chord box" (a visual representation of where to put your fingers on the fretboard), how to use a chord and lyric sheet to play a song, how to read a simple melody on the treble clef for guitar or ukulele, how to read a "lead sheet" (a page with lyrics, chords, and a basic melody on a treble clef), how to play one-chord, two-chord, three-chord, and four-chord folk songs (at least one new song each lesson)... and more!
4. I'll lead some group songs together, a new one we've just learned plus some we already know
5. I'll review the lesson and give homework: things to practice daily before the next session
