The Ukulele in the Classroom series is a performance-based ukulele method through which students explore elements of music including melody, harmony, rhythm, form, tempo, dynamics and tone. The skills developed include singing, picking, strumming, ear training, sight-reading and music theory. Exercises and repertoire are arranged to accomodate many levels of skill simultaneously.

This hands-on performance-based ukulele method includes:

  • Traditional music from around the world
  • Popular songs
  • Classical and Baroque melodies
  • Creative skill-building exercises
  • Singing, picking, strumming and more!

It's fun. It works. It's music literacy, the ukulele way. The Student Edition Book 2 is item# 838425, available separately. The repertoire is on the Book 2 Companion CD, item# 852896, available separately.

Sturmming and chording are the central focus in Book 2. Melodic skills continue to be developed. Although the Book 2 Student Edition chord chart shows only 12 chords, the book's repertoire includes over 24 arrangements in 3 keys. This is possible because of the progression of the chords taught. The students learn to use familiar chords in many different ways.
