The International Ukulele Teaching Symposium

The Ukulele Symposium brings together individuals who are renowned for their practical, theoretical, and pedagogical ukulele teaching backgrounds, hosting discussions for ukulele teachers and students alike. The three-part symposium will examine best practices in ukulele teaching, the move to on-line learning, and a look at learning in a post-COVID world. Symposium panel members include practicing educators whose collective expertise and experience extend to teaching all age groups in the context of elementary, secondary, and post-secondary educational schools, as well as community groups, clubs, and recreational learners. The discussion will include the historical perspective of teaching the ukulele in the Hawaiian culture and examine teaching and learning as is offered at festivals throughout the world.  Presented by The NAMM Foundation in collaboration with Kala Brand Music Co., Aquila USA, Inc, and Kamaka Hawaii, Inc.
