<p class="paragraph">In the 1960s, educator J. Chalmers Doane dramatically changed school music programs across Canada, using the ukulele as an inexpensive and practical teaching instrument to foster musical literacy in the classroom.[11] 50,000 schoolchildren and adults learned ukulele through the Doane program at its peak.[12] &quot;Ukulele in the Classroom&quot;, a revised program created by James Hill and Doane in 2008 is a staple of music education in Canada.</p>
