Hi! I’m Caleb Electric Brain! I’m a TBI survivor, and I play the Ukulele!
Today, I’m with brother Andre Jared Johnson. He has an online course, where he teaches people how to play different strumming patterns on the ukulele. It called Confident Strum the Ukulele. You can go check it out here.
“But how can a ukulele help your brain?” you ask. According to classicfm.com, “Researchers have found that learning to play a musical instrument can enhance verbal memory, spatial reasoning and literacy skills.” It goes on to say that, “Playing an instrument makes you use both sides of your brain, which strengthens memory power.” If you want to read more on that, you can check it out here.
In the video below, my brother and I will teach you how to play “I’ve been Wokin’ On the Railroad” on the Ukulele.
