An Acoustic-Electric Baritone Ukulele for Electrifying Concerts

My Students

My students come into my music classroom once a week full of energy, excitement, and a passion for music. Unfortunately, they face many struggles in their attempt to achieve academically. Most are impoverished, raised by someone other than their parents, and reside in a dangerous community full of crime, gangs, drugs, and violence. Many don't have their most basic physical and emotional needs met. The two free meals and one snack they receive each day may be all they eat that day. Many have parents that are incarcerated or addicted to drugs/alcohol or mentally unable to provide for the needs of their child. However, many of them do succeed! I am so proud of each one when they reach and surpass their academic goals!

My Project

My Marvelous Mini Musicians need an Acoustic-Electric Baritone Ukulele for amplification at our ukulele concerts. Much of the music they are learning is challenging two part music and requires that one part of the music be heard clearly above the others. The acoustic ukuleles that are used in the classroom are not loud enough to be heard over the part of the music that is not emphasized. I am very proud of the students' progress on their ukulele playing skills and would really like them to be able to shine by being heard clearly at their upcoming ukulele concert. Please consider helping my Marvelous Mini Musicians to Rock on!
