    Ukuleles are becoming more and more popular in today's society--in schools, community groups, and in popular culture. They are a great way to teach melody, harmony, singing, improvising and composing, both in solo and ensemble settings.

Thank you in advance for helping to add another layer of music to the Thurston Elementary School curriculum. The website to donate is:
