Sixty Sixth Post - U
U for Ukulele of course!
A small instrument that packs a big punch. My rather lengthy and ongoing career in education began in the very late 70's as a music educator. The school district I taught in was a big proponent of the ukulele as a tool to teach music literacy and musicianship.
No one has quite represented our school district as well as Mr. Luongo alias Mr. Ukulele. Here's a clip of the world travelled Langley Ukulele ensemble performing The Flight of the Bumble Bee. Nope you're not hearing/seeing things; this IS a ukulele ensemble.
I have long since shifted from music educator to school counsellor, but my love of music continues. I see its value as a therapeutic tool, but mostly love it for the pleasure, peace, joy, delight it brings to my life.
