In a video, Madeline explains how ukelele helps her in managing everyday aspects of living with muscular atrophy. For 2 ½ years, Madeline has been playing the ukelele and realized that playing the instrument and singing along has offered her something positive to concentrate on. Madeline is twelve years old and is from Utah. She suffers from spinal muscular atrophy. She discovered that her muscles were weak and couldn’t play other instruments such as violin or piano. She found that ukelele was perfect regarding weight and size. Now she loves entertaining her audiences with her playing and singing.
