Say Aloha to my Little Friend: How I learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Ukulele

Wednesday, June 5, 2019
1:15pm – 2:45pm

Depot Campus

Come learn with the Center for Learning in Retirement and Luis A. Cordon, Professor of Psychological Science, ECSU.

Recent research suggests a link between learning to play a musical instrument and improved cognitive functioning, both for children and as a buffer against cognitive decline and dementia in later life. This hybrid lecture/performance highlights Professor Cordon’s own musical experiences and the humble ukulele’s particular suitability as a point of entry to the world of music-making for even the complete novice.
