Let's play UKULELES
This project entails providing a class set of ukuleles for each music room and integrating new units of music education using the ukuleles with our current music curriculum. The new, expanded curriculum will augment the students’ understanding of music development, enhance their appreciation and enjoyment of music, and help them develop new skills and gain confidence.
