It’s been a long time coming but we finally got Sofia into Ukulele Lessons.
She first showed interest in the Ukulele after seeing Grace VanderWaal on America’s Got Talent. If anyone doesn’t know who she is, please do yourself a favor and watch this (I’m not crying, you’re crying). When Sofia watched her audition I could see it in her eyes. The gears were turning and the concept that you could turn a dream and passion into a future had her smitten. As her mother I could not be more happy that at 4 years old she had a strong enough love for music that she dreamt of a future in it.
Grace VanderWaal put the fire in her eyes and I would do everything I could to embrace it, helping it along anyway I could. I surprised Sofia one day with going out to rent a Ukulele. Did you see the vlog? Apparently it’s what the world wanted to see from us as it unexpectedly went viral. Now having been viewed nearly 40,000 times, either they love the passion or baby Stella taking a tumble in the intro.
This past Christmas, Sofia’s Aunt and Uncle bought her a Ukulele and with that the fuel hit the fire. Ukulele Lessons were in order. I found a teacher locally that specializes in both Ukulele and Voice and… well the rest is history. Her Ukulele Lessons started last weekend and will continue from here on out.
See for yourself. Tell me she isn’t the cutest little Ukulele player you ever did see?
