Dear parents/guardians of ukulele students,

Belmont’s intermediate music students will once again be learning and making music with the ukulele.  Some of the reasons for the past success of this program are that the ukulele is:

    1.  portable and small enough for young students
    2.  excellent as a solo or ensemble instrument
    3.  an excellent tool for developing ear-training and teaching music theory
    4.  relatively inexpensive compared to other instruments
    5.  an instrument that students can play while singing

Participation in the program requires that you purchase a ukulele for your child.

I am presently making inquiries to see if any of our grade 7 students would be interested in selling their used ukuleles for approximately half the price listed below.  If you are interested in the possibility of buying one of these ukuleles, please let me know (don’t send money).

To ensure that the ukulele lasts for the duration of the program, I would appreciate it if you would reinforce with your child the importance of caring for the instrument.  Thank you for your assistance.

If you are unable to purchase a ukulele at this time, please do not hesitate to contact me, and other arrangements will be made to acquire them.

Please fill out the order form and return it with money or a cheque made out to “Belmont Elementary School” by Tuesday, September 16th.

I am looking forward to working with the students of Belmont and making music an important and enjoyable part of their education.

Sincerely,

Mr. J. Thomas
Belmont Music Teacher
