5th Grade Ukulele Unit!
The Fifth graders and I are super excited to have started our ukulele unit two weeks ago…we are strumming away and enjoying learning how to play chords and accompany ourselves while singing.
(Ms. G unpacking the new Ukuleles!!!)
Most days I join students for some extra practice time at morning patio…Our Uke club is going strong!!!
(Pic Coming Soon!)
The Uke is great instrument that can be enjoyed for many years, and is meant to be a lifetime music instrument for our kids here at BFIS. Ukuleles are small, easily portable, and inexpensive. If you’re interested in purchasing one for your child, I recommend the following instruments. (Just follow the hyperlinks to Amazon to purchase). We have a class set for use at school, but it’s always more motivating when you have your own to practice with at home! However, you can easily pick up a soprano Ukulele at most guitar or music shops!
Make sure to pick up an electronic tuner so that your child can tune their instrument at home!
Finally, here are some inspirational ukulele video’s to enjoy! I especially love Grace Vandewaal, who was introduced to me by one of our students!!
Also, one of my Favorite Ukulele Players Jake Shimabukuro playing Bohemian Rhapsody on the Ukulele!
