After receiving an instrument grant from the Foundation and then seeing how much fun the kids had with the ukuleles, Emily decided it was the perfect time to offer an additional class. One that would take on complex subjects and dedicate more time for an in-depth look at this small but very useful instrument.
"As for the after-school club, I want to focus on applying chords practically to music for performance," she said. "I want my club students to have a more personal experience with the ukulele. Where they get to take what they have learned and know and apply it to songs of their choice."
