Description

The easiest ukulele method ever for kids ages 5 and up. This fun method teaches you to play songs on the ukulele right away. The accompanying online audio and video always lets you see demonstrations and hear how the music should sound on any computer or handheld device. Three irresistible ukulele experts guide students along---a clever, classical dog, one cool jazz cat, and a friendly alligator who loves the blues. They draw attention to what's important on each page and make learning music fun! Parents can be effective guides through this course, even if they've never had any musical training. This course is also perfect for the classroom. Songs include "Aloha Oe," "Over the Rainbow," "When the Saints Go Marching In," and more.
