My Students

Living along the border of Mexico, my students come to school with a rich culture of music, art, and dance. When you combine all three categories, your class becomes alive with a motivation to learn.

Strumming the chords of a ukulele is not only soothing, but it provides an essential ingredient for life long learning, which is the ultimate goal for any teacher.

Imagine the sounds of music inspiring future artists to reach their full potential. With your help these dreams will come true, and we will all enjoy the pleasure of their musical efforts.

My Project

The Mu40 Soprano Ukulele Classroom 10 - Pack will provide a musical outlet that any person could enjoy regardless of age.

When you learn your first chords and combine the notes with a variety of strumming patterns, you have created a new melody or a simple song that warms your heart.

This small instrument literally takes you to a wonderful and colorful world of music.

Many of my students need this distraction in their daily lives because so many of them are already broken in spirit. The ukuleles provide an unconditional love, which brings smiles to all, and the sound is incredible.
