Ukulele Expressions: A Guide to Making Music with Only One Hand
A Free Resource Guide Available Now on My Website
Creating music with only one hand can seem challenging but with my free guide, individuals who face that challenge can still enjoy playing music on the ukulele.
In this guide, I outline how you can help others play ukulele music with only one hand. I outline and give examples of fingerpicking and alternate tuning, discuss how listening to music can help you identify sounds, and I’ve also included five songs with Doodle Prompts.
Music therapy has been shown to have many benefits, including improving mood, reducing stress, and promoting relaxation. It can also help individuals develop fine motor skills, improve cognitive functioning, and enhance communication skills. My guide may be especially helpful for individuals who have experienced an injury or illness that affects their ability to play music with both hands.
The songs and doodle prompts I've included can be a starting point for you. You can make the music more complex, depending on who you are working with. You can think of the songs as "soundscapes" for improvisation. Feel free to experiment or "noodle" around with the music.
