Our third grant of the 2017-18 school year was approved for a classroom set of ukuleles for elementary music classes. Ukuleles provide a fun learning opportunity for upper elementary students.
Students will enhance their musical learning by learning to play a string instrument, which will prepare them for future learning. They will move onto guitar once they get to the middle school. Students will learn chord structures and harmonization. They will be introduced to reading new notation styles, while improving rhythm skills and finger dexterity and coordination.
Check back for an update on how the students are progressing with the instruments, and possibly a video!
