I recently wrote a piece for Leading Notes, a online music education magazine. It details the ukulele project, cross-curricular learning as well as how it helped me grow as an educator. Sometimes we are unaware of the personal and professional growth we are experiencing until it is over or at least plateaus. For me the ukulele project was something that came out of an effort to take more risks and expand the breadth and reach of my teaching–in the end it did all of that and continued to change me as an educator.
