AUSS no. 4 features a Steel City Ukes native! Amber Rozel is a teacher and performer that you may not have heard of, unless you’re from Pittsburg, PA. She’s also a classmate of mine from the James Hill Ukulele Initiative in Toronto. She may be the least famous guest I’ve had on the show, but it’s definitely one of my favorite conversations!
We talked about teaching tips, playing past the 3rd fret, practice schedules, and so much more. The saddle we were talking about is called a compensated saddle.
You can learn more about the Suzuki method here.
In case you’re curious, you can read more about musical counting systems here.
More information about the James Hill ukulele program is here.
Yes the 8th fret on the 1st string is F, unless you aren’t playing a C6 tuned ukulele.
A great teaching tip is a chart: 2 great things and 1 thing to improve for the next week. Use gold stars, too! It’s called 2 stars and a wish.
There’s only one more episode from the Allegheny Ukulele Soiree after this, and it just might be the best one yet!
As always, you can find me and my music at ukuleleabe.com.
