Term Two we are learning to play stringed instruments. We are learning to play either the ukulele or the guitar. We have wonderful helper named Aaron who is an accomplished musician and is part of the “Kerplunks” among other things. Our school recieved an arts grant and we now have a set of concert ukes to play. They will need to be tuned quite often as the strings are new.
