Ukelele!

Walking into the mercifully air conditioned Jack Miller, I heard soft music floating down the halls. More by ear than anything else, I found Hope’s ukulele camp, where students learn to play in a week. Chord by chord and day by day, students are able to put together whole songs by the end!

The camp is made possible by a local music teacher who comes in during her summer to teach kids. To help her out, Hope Summer Camps provides 3 students assistants to make sure no artist falls through the cracks. The assistants, who help with various camps, also keep things light and fun with games to keep kids occupied.

The mix of hands on learning and fun makes this camp the perfect entry into music for kiddos. I only wish it had been around when I was young…
