On 29 June 2019, 17 student volunteers spent their day with AWWA kids and their families strumming beautiful tunes on the ukulele together!

The group included children as young as five, to parents who are in their 50s, and a majority of them have no prior experience playing any string instruments. Playing the ukulele was also a first for many of the volunteers. The volunteers, together with the instructors from Intune Music who facilitated the session, played a supporting role by patiently guiding the families to pick up basic strumming methods and common chords.

One of the challenges was to maintain the attention of the younger children but our volunteers strived to keep them interested! Through their efforts, the AWWA children and their families were eventually confident enough to strum and sing along.

In the short three-hour session, they managed to learn how to strum and sing to popular pop songs such as Katy Perry’s “Roar”, Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours”, and more! At the end of the session, some of the older kids even presented a song to the AWWA staff who attended the session. It was certainly rich and fun music experience and everyone had a strumming good time!
