Having melodic instruments like ukuleles in a music room can be an amazing resource. We have many unpitched instruments like drums, tambourines, egg shakers, rhythm sticks, and other similar instruments. These rhythm instruments are extremely valuable in performing and creating music. The sounds that they make can accompany songs or create a soundscape for a story. They cannot, however, provide any melody or harmony. Melody and harmony are huge parts of the musical world! How can music teachers provide a holistic music education without melody or harmony? They can't! Melody instruments like ukuleles are wonderful tools for elementary music teachers to get their students to accompany songs with harmony or to get their students to begin playing, improvising, or composing melodies. Students are learning on a real instrument and can continue to play and enjoy music on the ukulele throughout their lives. Although students here are learning many, many things about the world of music, I believe that their music education will be enhanced by the addition of ukuleles. I'm committed to providing the best musical education that I can for the kids at our school with what I have. In the meantime, I am also trying my best to get us more instruments!
