Essential starting points for a sound approach

This practical and experiential tutorial from Dr Robert Krout is a fun and engaging look at using ukulele in your clinical work.

Starting with a brief history of the ukulele’s origins Dr Krout discusses the different styles and sizes of ukulele available and demonstrates their sounds and uses. He also covers the most common keys and provides useful chord graphs to help you learn both simple and increasingly complex ukulele chords.

Robert provides an in-depth look at both right and left hand techniques on the ukulele. Covering basics such as voicings and inversions to more complex accompaniment patterns, using capo’s & slides to using vamps to make your playing more musically interesting and engaging for your clients - and you!
