Ukelele specialist Ben Ahn harmonizes with ES music students

IMG_4102The ES Music program was gifted with a talented musician in residence, Ben Ahn, from October 1-5. Ben hails from Kauai, Hawaii, and is a ukulele specialist, teacher, and performer. Ben spent time with all ES students covering history of the ukulele, different genres of music, and basic ukulele skills, and many of the children had a hands-on experience creating music with this instrument. Ben demonstrated how creativity, innovation and improvisation can be explored and enjoyed on the ukulele, and provided fine example of how hard work, perseverance, discipline and love of music can develop a fine musician and shape one’s life.
