Did you ever hear of an instrument known as the “jumping flea?” Beatle George Harrison strummed on a “jumping flea.” We know the instrument better as a ukulele!

Harrison used to transport this four-stringed instrument in the trunk of his car and hand them out to his friends. Harrison would’ve had many friends in Arlington.

ACMi’s Greg Bartlett says a unique educational partnership is providing ukuleles for 4th graders to become the next ukulele hero!
