So this summer, while at the JHUI level 2 course in Vancouver, one of our fellow classmates, Mark Jackson, introduced the group to SoundCloud. We were just about to sight read a piece together and Mark pulled out his iPhone and started recording us. (that’s his voice in the first few seconds before the music begins) The track was instantly uploaded and out there in the world.
Ever since then, I’ve been thinking I’d like to use this fun technology for teaching and so here is my first attempt.
My ukulele students have now started to learn this piece so I’ve shared this with them to listen to and hopefully help them with their practice. Maybe someday they’ll put their own sounds out there for the world to hear.
