Classical Ukuleles

A Collection of Favorites for Young Players

We love ukuleles! They have such a wonderful, unique sound and they are accessible for players of all ages. We also love classical music – all those incredible, recognizable melodies. It's so important to introduce these melodies and their composers to our young students.

We have taken six well-known classical compositions and arranged them to work with ukuleles. The ukulele parts are designed to fit in with the original work, but the chords used are all easy to fairly easy to play.

Your young players will feel like they are part of the orchestra when they strum along with the high-quality accompaniment tracks. These recordings use real instruments played by real, professional musicians.

This unique collection includes the following (chords in parenthesis):

  • Beethoven's Ukulele Minuet (C, D7, F, G, Ami)
  • Ukulele & Trumpet Voluntary (C, D7, F, G)
  • Rossini's Ukulele Overture (C, G, Ami)
  • Vivaldi's Ukulele & Mandolin Concerto (C, F, G, Ami)
  • Haydn's Ukulele Serenade (C, F, G, G7)
  • Eine Kleine Ukulele Musik (C, D, D7, F, G, G7, Ami)
