Strum it Up!
21 Soprano Ukulele Pieces in Orff Style!
By Sandy Lantz and Gretchen Wahlberg
Book and online resources
44 pages


Collection of ukulele pieces for the Orff music classroom. The timbre of the ukulele supports the child's voice and allows them to hear and sing harmony more accurately with ukulele accompaniment. Each piece has orchestrations and some lessons add movement or improvisation.  Arrangements use ukuleles, barred instruments, unpitched percussion, and recorders to integrate the ukulele with classroom instruments. Online supplemental files include lyric sheets, chord charts, and visuals for your presentation software.
