Y ear 4 students at Point Clare Public School finished their ukulele course on Thursday, June 26.
The students attended a one hour lesson every week for a period of seven weeks. “They were very enthusiastic, putting lots of effort into learning the songs,” said instructor Ms Marilyn Russell. “We covered five basic chords in a short time and nothing proved too difficult when the students applied their efforts,” she said. “Over the course, students learnt one, sometimes two new songs each week, along with new strumming rhythms and some basic music theory.
” The students have been invited to perform with the Troubadour and Uke Central Ukulele groups on Sunday, July 13, at Woy Woy markets. The students completed their course with a performance at the school on Thursday evening along with the Year 3 Scottish Country Dance students and drumming students. “It was so much fun teaching the students and we are really looking forward to hearing the students perform over the next few weeks,” said Ms Russell.
