All fourth grade students at St. John’s have the wonderful opportunity to learn the ukulele as part of the fourth grade music curriculum. Over the past few weeks, the students have been learning about the parts of the ukulele and practicing how to care for these special instruments. Last week the students had their very first (and very exciting!) day playing the ukuleles. They learned how to fingerpick and play each string. We are excited for a wonderful year of musical learning as we continue to delve into reading and playing musical notes and rhythms, learning about musical scales, composing, creating, playing the ukulele, and enjoying God’s wonderful gift of music.
