We kicked off our new Summer Watermark University semester with one of our new favorite classes, Uke Can Do It: An Introductory Ukulele Class. This class is taught by our friends at George’s Music School. We had a wonderful time at this fun, interactive and educational workshop on a great instrument – the ukulele! This class is not only fun but can help us all cognitively. Did you know that learning a new instrument helps keep your memory intact by creating new brain synapses.
