I teach a music exploration class. I currently have a class set of 5 ukuleles and 3 guitars for a class of 32 students. Having more and more similar instruments will allow my class to go deeper with fretted stringed instruments, with each student having more time with a particular instrument. This middle school class would also more closely align with Guitar 101 that is offered at the high school, giving students opportunities to practice finger and strumming techniques that will transfer to other instruments. Because my class is a part of the sixth grade elective wheel at the middle school, many students take the class with little or no musical experience. For some students, this class provides a final attempt to connect students to the more elective music classes (like band, choir, and guitar) that exist beyond it. This class attempts to bridge the gap between elementary music specialists and middle school music programs, to keep students singing, but also, to help students experience the connection between musical expression and musical collaboration. With its emphasis on playing popular music using popular instruments while collaborating with peers, this class provides a unique musical experience that serves all students.
