1. We were chosen from schools all across the state to participate in the North Carolina Symphony's Adopt-a-School program. Their double-bassist, Mr. Erik Dyke, will be visiting us virtually to teach us the ukulele and bring us some cool virtual resources from the NC Symphony and around the world.
2. The Give a Note Foundation and their partners Orangewood Guitars has generously donated 20 ukuleles to our school for use in this program and for the students to learn in music class when they return to the building! This is a fun and easy instrument for learning rhythm and song structure that the kids will love.
3. If all goes well, I hope to hold a virtual ukulele concert of our fifth graders playing their ukes in the spring. More information about this is coming!
