On Wednesday 17th August, our Kaikorai Primary Ukulele Jam participated in the 2016 Kids’ Jam. 1000 children from all over Otago participated in this event, which involved singing and playing our ukulele instruments.
Our group worked very hard to learn a full programme of songs and they included some ‘tricky chords’.
As is our Kaikorai Primary tradition, we sang and played all the way to, and back from Tahuna Intermediate. Our favourite songs included the Cup Song and Sweet Child of Mine and Proud Mary. On the day we played with a live band and various percussion instruments. Tom Dyer, Jenny de la Harpe and Grace Jung all got to perform on percussion instruments as well.
We would like to thank Richelle Byers for giving up a morning of work to come and help us.
