Learning to Play The Ukuleles

Fourth and fifth grade students in Miss Caitlyn Stratman’s music class have been working very hard to learn how to play the ukulele. This is the first year Bancroft Elementary School has introduced ukuleles in the music curriculum, and it has been a hit with the students. So far the students have mastered playing the open strings and are now beginning to learn basic chords. Soon, the students will be using these chords to play pop songs such as “Thunder” by Imagine Dragons in class!
