Love it. Are you playing a uke?

Funny, one of the older students heard me from the hall and thought that, too. I'm playing my Bart Reiter Whyte Layde openback. When I play with a large group (5 classes ended up doing this for the final school performance), I use the thumb pick more, strumming loudly.

Forgot to mention, Kevin, that Kit is playing mandolin, too. I got him to come for lunch and stay afterwards for practice.

I sounds a bit like a uke to me. I have a Bart Reiter Standard that I've strung with nylon and it can sound uke-like at times.
You teach first grade? Very brave. I can still remember my 1st grade teacher Mrs. Sweeney very well and can still remember some moments from that time, like when I brought in a bunch of cow bones that I had found bleached in a field for show & tell. My mother couldn't believe I did it.

Just uploaded my 1st grade pictures from 1958.

They love to be chosen to play a rhythm instrument, such as the coffee can drum in The Little Drummer Boy, or any variety of folk instruments I can gather. I also make songbooks for them so they can read along, reading being the primary goal of first grade. Singing helps them learn concepts, too. This sounds like a new blog!

Anybody that doesn't like this has no heart.

Thanks, gentlemen. Greg, your thumbs up is a signal we use a lot at school. Your smiling face goes right along with it!
