In this one hour weekly class we will learn to play songs from the radio by listening and learning to interpret what we hear into a ukulele cover. Through group discussion, we will listen to a popular song, fill in a blank strumming template by deciding where the accents are, which band instruments we feel are most important to mimic, which riffs & hooks are crucial to know, and how to memorize lyrics. We will develop singing techniques, ear-training/deciphering skills, and various strumming techniques to best capture the essence of the song. 
This is a non-traditional music class where my goal is for the students to develop skills and understanding of music which will allow them to play any song they hear with a little analysis and practice, ensuring their future in figuring out music on their own without the assistance of a teacher for every song. 
The pace of the class will be determined by the students and their practice habits.

Prerequisite: Must know basic chords (C, F, G, D, Am, Dm), have at least one year experience in playing ukulele, have a basic understanding of musical notation (quarter notes, half notes, dotted quarters, eighth notes, etc.), read TAB, have good practicing habits and have great interest in learning songs from the radio.
