I love teaching these elementary students, it is an honor to work with them! They are so eager to learn instruments in my music classroom. They love hands-on learning and creating their own rhythms, instrument accompaniments, performing in programs for the community, learning to read music, sing, and perform choreography. These students support each other through all musical endeavors and always compliment each other for trying their best. This is a very kind group of students.
I love my creative and music-loving elementary students!
These ukuleles will be the highlight of these students' year, and many years to come! Our school has very , very few instruments to play in the music room, and I wanted to start our collection with the ukuleles that multi-age students can learn to play. The students will enjoy learning the life-long skills of music note and chord reading. They will also be able to sing and accompany themselves.
I can't wait to see the surprised faces of the parents and community when we play and sing with these ukuleles in our next music programs!
So many of the students have been asking for these ukuleles and I would love to be able to surprise them with these awesome instruments.
