Yes Uke Can!

Dorothy J. Tripp, Elementary Music Teacher, will receive $681.70 for her project, “Yes Uke Can!” This project is a hands‐on learning experience that provides elementary school students with a chance to learn a stringed instrument within the general music setting. Students will use the ukulele as a tool to develop musical skills needed for future ensemble participation, make connections between the performing arts and disciplines outside the arts, and provide a sense of community within the classroom.
