The ukulele is an instrument students can play alone or with a group, regardless of the skill level or genre of music they love. Because of its smaller size, the ukulele is easier to hold than a guitar. It uses the same fingerings as a guitar, but only has 4 strings instead of 6 so learning to play chords is easier. We presently only have one guitar and it only has 4 strings instead of six. Impossible to share with a full classroom of future rock stars. Students are enthusiastic to learn such a diverse and fun instrument that can be used to express and help them discover their inner self and confidence through music! Over half of my students come from very low income households and many others from households of hard working parents, many of who work in our town's largest employer, a shipyard. Many of our school families struggle to provide the basic necessities for their children and the opportunity for musical experiences outside of the public school do not exist. Learning to play the ukulele will provide my students with a life skill that they can carry with them for the rest of their life giving them a positive outlet for self expression and creativity. Our school is fortunate to have another local arts minded organization working to purchase our classroom set of ukuleles and this project will assist with providing materials to help my physically and mentally challenges students play more safely and easily and will also help keep the ukuleles in good playing condition.
