Karen Jasko, Activities Director for the Little Sisters of the Poor (LSOP) residence in Bellvue, has developed her own method for teaching basic chords and fingerings to her elderly residents. An accomplished musician herself, Karen provides color-coded versions of popular tunes featuring (mostly) one-finger chords. She also uses positional cues (turn uke out, up, etc.) to help residents develop their skills....enjoy making music. Some residents move on to songs from Belloff's Daily Uke, 365.

Karen has presented her methods at various conferences and organizations. I have found that she is busy, but generous with her time. If you are interested in learning more you might contact her at LSOP, 412.307.1130.
