"I have been really enjoying my ukulele lessons this year and look forward to them every week! It hurts my fingers, but it's a lot of fun and I want to persevere at it to keep getting better." - Landon


"I think it is an extraordinary opportunity that we get to experience playing the ukulele, especially after lockdown. Not many schools have this privilege and that's why I'm grateful for it. Since I already play saxophone, I think it is amazing that I also get the chance to learn the ukulele!" - Sophia
