A team of five elementary music teachers will explore, develop, and pilot a K-5 scope and sequence of ukulele music lesson units with the goal of establishing the ukulele as a standard general music classroom instrument. Throughout the 21-22 school year, the team will share their work and experiences with the full elementary music department during fine arts department professional development meetings and will make a recommendation to the department in May, 2022, with a plan of action to establish an elementary ukulele program in Newton Public Schools elementary music programs.
