Uke'n Play Ukulele for Kids
This updated Kids edition of the bestselling Uke'n Play Ukulele series will get young beginners strumming, singing and playing easy songs that only feature 3 chords. Written by professional player and educator Mike Jackson, the book features his unique instant play method, some simple songs that are familiar to all children, together with downloadable play-along audio.
The book opens with how to tune up, before detailing Jackson's innovative instant play method, which kids are guaranteed to love. Once they've mastered this, Uke'n Play Ukulele For Kids teaches 25 simple songs that are instantly-recognisable and well-known.
The first few songs use just one chord, before introducing two more. Each features chord diagrams, lyrics and chord symbols, helping children learn to play the Ukulele by practising strumming the chords and getting used to finger positions, while also playing fun tunes. Songs include Row, Row, Row Your Boat, The Lion Sleeps Tonight, Jingle Bells, and many more.
The accompanying audio downloads will help you tune up, get familiar with the songs, then play along with a full backing band. Some songs also feature Mike's handy hints so learning the Uke goes as smoothly as possible.
Uke'n Play Supa Easy Ukulele is a fantastic resource for the classroom, or other groups of young beginners.
