What Principals, Parents and Kids Are Saying…

Dear Carolyn,

Thank you for all you are doing to teach my daughter, and others, this wonderful instrument! I was beyond amazed just how much Eryn learned in her very first lesson! She came home and showed her father and I her ukulele and all it's different parts. She practised the song they had been introduced to and she even showed us how she has to tune the ukulele herself! Quite the cute little song that they know in order to see if it's in tune or not! Thanks again!

Sincerely,
Parent, Bells Corners PS, Ottawa.


 

Ukulele kids was an amazing experience everyone should have.
I was so immersed into Ukulele Kids I bought 2 ukuleles with my own money.
I highly recommend Ukulele Kids for your children.

What Schools Are Saying…

We loved the program and thought it went very well. I believe it was well received by the students and parents.Your instructors were very polite and professional. We are certainly open to doing this again next year.

Take care.

"Thanks so much Tim for a beautiful performance! The children were amazing!
Sincerely,
 - Devia Catania - Principal, St. Bernadette Catholic


I have been very impressed with the program here at Harrison. The enthusiasm and energy that you and your staff brought into our school when the program began was remarkable. You managed to capture an audience of 220 children during your promotional visit by sharing fun music that everyone could relate to. Your company was able to accommodate a variety of age groups by bringing in skilled and quality instructors to deliver the program. The bright and colourful instruments are carried proudly to school every Wednesday by students in the program. Last year, during our Grade 6 Graduation a group of students planned and performed a song together and three of them were playing their ukuleles! This was all done on their own initiative. Ukulele Kids has introduced a new skill for many of our students which is something they will be able to expand upon and develop for a lifetime!

The ukulele performances went very well. It was great to see the kids up there really getting into it. Parents were especially pleased. I think it would be beneficial to have the program again in the fall. Parents have expressed an interest in having their children continue on with the lessons.

“The Ukulele is a fun and easy instrument to learn for people of all ages. In both the Community Centre setting and Retirement Residence settings, this program has enabled many seniors to learn a new instrument in an engaging and fun manner. People in their 80 and 90’s can and have learned to play this instrument! The best part is singing along while they play the songs they know and love.”
