I get a lot of questions about how to learn and teach ukulele to students, especially early on, when students are total beginners. This lesson is for you (if you’re a total beginner) and your students (if you teach anyone else). The strategies I cover in this video tutorial for beginning ukulele include how to start off strumming the ukulele, how to do basic Down-Up strums, and how to practice strums in a classroom setting. Then we get into chording and playing songs. I cover topics like, when to switch chords and how to play a song without getting hung up on chord changes.
