Topic Intent:

We believe that every young person benefits from learning to play a musical instrument. Learning to play an instrument builds confidence and self-discipline.  
These personal skills help our students, not just in the music classroom, but throughout school and their life outside of school 
The ukulele is the perfect instrument to help our students build these skills, it is simple to begin with but allows them to go on a musical journey developing more complex musical skills 
Throughout this unit our students will develop their performing, composing, and listening skills, as well as learning to recognise and use some traditional musical notation. 
Through practice and rehearsal our students will develop their resilience and critical ear. Learning to use rehearsal time effectively and applying a critical ear to their own work and the work of others. 
Learning the Ukulele will give all our students an invaluable and unforgettable musical experience which will help to reinforce our key value that “Music is for everyone”
