Under the Sea with a Ukulele! (5/30/23)

Today in my Major Studies Music class, the students worked together to practice playing “Under the Sea” from The Little Mermaid on the ukulele!

The song has four chords, the C chord, the F chord, the A minor chord, and the G chord. The students not only have to learn the finger positions to play these chords, but also the sequence and timing that these chords are played! They also have to learn the strum pattern as well, all of which is a lot of work!

The more experienced students help the newer students, and they all learn at their own pace. Whenever it’s practice time, the noise is pretty chaotic, but when they’re playing together, it sounds great!

I look forward to everyone being able to play this and many other songs!
