10 Ukulele Lessons With Strum-Along Songs
A must-have resource for any music classroom equipped with ukuleles! The creative pair of authors (one a general music teacher, the other a private ukulele instructor) has assembled an amazing journey to quickly get your kids playing a host of popular hits.
Each of 10 units includes tuning instruction, chord drill, strum pattern practice, and a skillbuilding exercise, culminating with an engaging performance piece followed by an interactive assessment activity. Embedded with fret diagrams, hand position photos, rhythmic chants for every new pattern, helpful "getting started" screens, plus appealing demo and play-along tracks, the adventure is only a few clicks away on your computer or interactive whiteboard. Songs include "Roar," "Best Day Of My Life," "Over The Rainbow," "Riptide," and more. (Grades 4 and up)
