Color-Along Ukulele

IMG_8655

The SECOND EDITION has arrived!

With a few small corrections, the 2018 edition of COLOR-ALONG UKULELE is in stock on my website and at Ukulele Magazine’s store! This is a fun method book designed to be used by ALL-AGES. If you are an adult, you will enjoy the step-by-step lessons and familiar songs. If you are working with kids, this is a handy guide to get them going and keep them strumming, complete with a page of helpful classroom hints. Great for kid’s groups, classrooms, families and individuals!

Tunes start simple, with one chord songs that even the most newbie players can successfully strum.  Every new song teaches a lesson and draws on a world of traditions, from Scottish, Mexican,  German and American folk traditions. There’s even a song in Hawaiian at the very end!

LEARN BY EAR

A companion soundtrack  accompanies this book, and it’s FREE! These recordings were created so that you can listen, learn and play along, and  are extended with fun additional verses so that  players can get their groove on. If you are a teacher, the long playing tunes allow you lead a class in a musical game, or let students listen while they tune up. Or, to the point,  COLOR-ALONG to the songs as you learn them!

Kids too young to play can learn the songs by ear, and basic music concepts by listening. Families can learn together. It’s fun for all ages.

2018: ULTRA VIOLET

pantone-color-of-the-year-2018-ultra-violet-banner

The Pantone color of the year is Ultra-Violet. Our word for the year is optimism.

I can’t help but feel that great things are in store this year, and I am willing to wear the purple to prove it.

We have a festival almost every month of 2018, with more fun stuff filling in the calendar every day.

For me, the best thing about ukulele is CONNECTION. I hope that I get the chance to connect with you in 2018: come to an event, send a message, write a letter, read an article. I am OPTIMISTIC that we can make the world a better place by CONNECTING!
