Impact statement: I offered free lessons to children in my neighborhood, Logan Square. I ended up teaching a girl named Margaret some basic chords and songs on the ukulele, an instrument I have been self teaching myself for two years
Reflection: I began learning the ukulele on my own because I thought it was something that would be a good stress reliever. It has defiantly proven to be so over the years, so I was excited to share it with someone else. Teaching someone music was a little daunting to me because it seemed very complex by requiring having a lot of patience and empathy for the learner. However, the experience was really good and I enjoyed it. I thought about the music instructors I have had in my life so far and tried to mimic how they approached our lessons. I started out with small things like strumming and eventually worked up to a full song with about 4 chords.
