The fourth and fifth graders at Immaculate Conception School are taking their knowledge of reading and loving music to a new level. They are learning how to play the Ukulele. Each student has been given their very own “uke” and, under the direction of Music teacher Mrs. Mary Krejci, they learn a new lesson in their music classes. The instrument is then taken home for more practice.
The ukulele is a member of the guitar family of instruments; it generally employs four nylon strings. The ukulele originated in the 19th century in Hawaii.
