Ukulele After School Club
The Ukulele Sprouts Club introduces all of the fundamentals of the playing of stringed instruments using the best kids’ instrument ever – the ukulele!
In Ukulele Sprouts we use original songs that were created on the uke to add essential motor skills seamlessly, one by one. We teach by ear which we believe is the most natural way to learn music, so there is no practice book necessary – all you need is your ukulele! ++ We design the classes to move quickly from one exercise to the next so students remain engaged while building skills, and we have them playing multiple chords and songs in a matter of weeks!This class is an effortless way to become musically fluent in a short amount of time, and your kiddos will be able to continue on ukulele or move over to guitar, fiddle, or bass or banjo with ease.
Appropriate for beginners ages 5-10++ – Promo code for 10% off of a Kala brand Ukulele provided after registration!
Ukulele Club meets on Tuesdays from 3pm-4pm. Register here: https://nashvillesprouts.com/products/fall2022sylvanpark

Interested families can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond with the registration link and be happy to answer any additional questions.
Open House is TONIGHT, 8/23!
Open House is TONIGHT, August 23. Parents/ guardians will report directly to the classroom. We will host two sessions, 6p-6:30p and 6:35p-7:05p. Both sessions will be the same so families with more than one child or more than one teacher can meet each teacher (if you have more than 2 children at SP or more then 2 teachers- 5th grade- please make arrangements with the teacher to get the information that you need).
Open House is intended for parents, not students. We WILL have childcare for potty-trained children age 3 and older (just bring your child to the gym) during Open House so that you can focus on the information being shared. Please sign up here for child care so that we can make appropriate plan.
Save the Date for Grandparents and Granola!
Calling all grandparents and special caregivers! Join us Thursday, September 1st to celebrate your student(s) in front of the school. The event will start at 7:30am and the PTO will provide light refreshments. We hope to see you there!
