It’s that time of the year again! I can’t believe that the time of in-depth has finally come. To be honest, I don’t know if I should be scared, stressed out, excited, or maybe all of the above but I’m so glad that I have the support of my family, friends, and teachers to guide me on this journey.
Let’s get right into the first in-depth blog post of the year!
I chose to put together a google slides to do my first post because I thought that it was an effective way to show my plans and progress without writing too many words.
You can find the link to it here:
*Special thank you to Ms. Mulder for letting me borrow her ukulele! I really appreciate it because I can have some time to play and choose different kinds of ukulele so that I know the perfect fit for me when I do buy one!
Overall I can’t wait to start my adventure with the ukulele and to share my learnings through the next set of in-depth posts! I think that it is extremely fulfilling to learn something that really intrigues you, and I’m glad that I have an opportunity to look into something that I’ve always really wanted to do!
My next in-depth post will include:
– Answers to the following questions [also mentioned in the contract]
o Does the ukulele have anything in common with the violin? How do the strings differ from each other?
o What are some key chord structures that I need to learn in order to play my chosen songs?
o Why do specific hand formations make certain chords on the ukulele? Can they be switched around to a higher/lower octave?
o What genre of music works well when playing the ukulele?
– My song choice and first attempts of playing the song on the ukulele; to compare later on to my final product/song when performing live
– Hopefully a finalized mentor [fill out criminal record!!!]
– maybe first tips lesson from Hira? [write up list of questions/comments beforehand]
– work out of beginner book and learn key chord structure
