Ukelele: The beginning

I am starting this journey at ground zero. I have past experience with reading notes for piano but a string instrument is unknown territory for me. At the after school care that I work at the grade 4’s I see are learning Ukulele too. They became my introduction to all things Ukulele. They even had their instruments with them so they could show me first hand. I learned which finger you use to strum, where the “sweet spot” is for strumming and heard the phrase “A dog’s favourite bone” to remember A,D,F,B for the 4 cords that their instruments are tuned to! They are a HUGE resource for me learning the basics. I am so happy I get to join them on this musical journey. This really reminded how the students can also be the teachers. Very Humbling
