*If you are not one of our UKC Kids or families, please consider a contribution to help support the donation of ukuleles to medically fragile children and teens as well as the new UKC At Home program, providing ukulele resources and music therapy groups to patients once they are discharged home from the hospital. Our goal is to always keep our UKC Academy classes free of charge for our UKC Kids, families, & supporters, and your generous contributions can help us continue that tradition and continue recruiting amazing instructors! Through the donation of ukuleles and support of music therapy, we give the gift of music for life.
