The Kapiti Primary School Senior Ukulele group perform Octopus’s Garden by The Beatles. Take a look and leave a positive comment.
At Kapiti Primary School in New Zealand we have two ukulele groups, a junior and senior one. Three teachers work together to teach the junior group, they are Ms Neave, Mrs Eaton and Mrs Nolan. They work with the junior group two lunchtimes a week. Below is a photo of the junior group.
The senior group is taught by Mr Madge (author of this site). He works with the senior group on a Tuesday lunchtime, Wednesday lunchtime with the advanced players and after school on a Thursday. We have been using the Uke ‘n play ukulele for Kids book and CD by Mike Jackson. After two weeks of lessons the beginners in the group can play the C and F chords and five songs! The advanced members of the group are working their way through Uncle Rod’s Ukulele Boot Camp resource. Below is a photo of the senior group.
