The Windmill School LaureL Education Center is excited to announce the fall lineup for Enrichment Classes for kids ages 4-9 at its beautiful Portola Valley campus. Windmill School LaureL Education Center is opening up its community spaces to excellent outside providers who will offer great classes this fall. We hope your PreK-4th graders will join in! 

Ukulele (offered by After School Music Academy):

After School Music Academy is pleased to bring its Ukulele Group back to the LaureL Education Center at Windmill School. We will be joined by teacher John Henry Bradshaw, who has taught music in enrichment programs at Palo Alto schools for many years. The uke is an excellent instrument on which to learn how to play music. In this ensemble, we will jump right into the fun stuff and learn how to play music on the ukulele. By the end of the course, students will know a few chord positions, will be able to play a couple of songs on the ukulele, and be able to sing along. Our instructors bring a classroom set of ukuleles with them to every class for the kids to use.
