Two Sisters Teach Beginners How to Play Ukulele
Jenny Peters is one part of the sister duo responsible for "21 Songs in 6 Days" and "Easy Ukulele Songs: Five with Five Chords". She stumbled upon the ukulele after finding 45 of them in one of her elementary school classrooms. Convinced she could turn her finding into more than a whole lot of noise, she designed a program to teach all of her students to play successfully with only 30 minutes of class time a week. No one was more grateful than the teacher in the next classroom.
A former private piano teacher in Chicago with a Masters in Piano Performance from the University of Illinois, Jenny now lives in Highland Park. Married with three kids, she shares her home with three cats and more musical instruments than she would care to name.
Rebecca Bogart is the second half of the sister writing team. An acclaimed classical pianist, performer and teacher, Rebecca has been passionate about the piano and music her entire life. She has played for audiences in Italy, taught master classes at Harvard and won more than a few piano competitions. She made her solo debut at Carnegie Hall in early 2014.
When not teaching or performing, Rebecca enjoys dancing, tending to her garden and playing the ukulele with Claire, the official 21 Songs in 6 Days cat. She calls the San Francisco Bay Area home.
