"Happy Birthday" Song - Poster & Handout for Guitar & Ukulele!
This “Happy Birthday” song resource can be used as a handout or made into a poster! There are two versions of the posters/handouts – a regular version and a more minimal version (in case you don’t want to use as much toner when printing). Both are provided in COLOR
and BLACK & WHITE
(if you want to print in large quantities or if you only have a B+W printer). All versions are sized for 8.5 x 11 paper, but can be printed larger to scale.
This song helps facilitate beginners playing familiar songs quickly and students can develop solid technique in the process. It is best to have students start by playing the song on the 1st string, and then experiment with using other strings as well. This works with almost ALL string instruments, particularly UKULELE
. Students will hopefully be proud of their progress and may even be brave enough to perform solo for the class, or play for their families.
This is a wonderful activity to use on students’ actual birthdays! The class can learn while celebrating and everyone can sing along while playing the notes on the instrument.
