Playing the Ukulele
Why play the ukulele? First, it’s cool. Second, it’s inexpensive. Third, it’s easy. Fourth, it’s portable. Fifth, it’s FUN!We’re in the midst of a mini ukulele boom – sales are surging. Beginning students would rather pick up a ukulele than a recorder. They sound better, and they’re even easier to learn! They’re so simple, they’re the obvious instruments to get started on. By learning just 2 or 3 simple chords, you can play dozens of songs, including rock and roll and blues!
Sister Joselle is an artist who teaches classes at her studio in Fayetteville, NY. She taught about the ancient form of the mandala (which predates Christianity) and how it is used in her watercolors.
