Hi there, I'm new on the forum so firstly my apologies if I'm posting this in the wrong section.
I've recently started teaching a Ukulele after school group of 4 children at a primary school aged 7-8 and I'm finding it fairly challenging. I'm mainly used to teaching one-on-one peripatetic lessons which seems to be completely different.
I'm having a lot of trouble trying to get the pupils to concentrate. What I'm guessing is that I need to forget my usual approach of teaching music and try and make these sessions fun and interactive. It seems that to even just get the pupils to hold the instruments and be still takes all of my energy, let alone try and play a whole song or learn some chords. I'm sure this may be part of the problem and I should be using movement or fun exercises etc, maybe some games?? It probably doesn't help that the session is right at the end of the day when concentration levels are low. If anyone has any general suggestions or resources I'd be very grateful.

thanks Ed
