I want to teach ukulele, but…
- I don’t know what to teach and when to teach it!
- I don’t have time to put an ukulele curriculum together!
- How do I get ukuleles for my students?
- What ukulele should I buy?
- I don’t know what other materials I need!
- I just don’t know where to begin!
Any of these thoughts sound familiar? If so, you are in the right place! Several years ago I was right there with you. I was introduced to the ukulele and wanted to bring it into my curriculum, but I had NO idea where to begin! I didn’t know what ukuleles I should buy, I didn’t know what materials I needed, and I was nervous about teaching it to my students! Hours and hours were spent over many months looking through materials to find the best program for my students. There wasn’t an ukulele curriculum written specifically for use in the elementary classroom, so I started from scratch and created one specifically for my classroom! Rainbow Ukulele was born and my kids LOVE it!
