The Ukulele Friends is a simple way of helping primary children remember the strings on the instrument, and learn their placement on the Treble Staff.
It is not hard for most children to remember the names of ukulele strings, but it is complex to make the transition to understanding those notes as fitting onto a treble staff for reading.
So, I have expanded my Grand Staff Hotel Note-Reading Programme to incorporate ukulele note picking. Each string has an animal character attached to it, which is taught from the beginning. Ukulele Friends cards may be used to help students find and play the note – first with the Character-&-String cards.
Later, when you wish to teach the notes on the staff, the characters return to show where they live on the staff. Character-&-Staff cards can be used for games and flash card purposes, and later Staff-only cards can be used. Included here are String-only cards, as well.
Programme Part II will incorporate all the notes on the treble staff: ready February 2019.
