Songs, Strums and Styles for Ukulele and Classroom Instruments
Arrangements by Tom Anderson
Book and audio and student PDF access
Grades 4 - 8
Playing songs on the ukulele is a perfect introduction to playing harmony, singing with others and experiencing rhythms of different styles of music. These songs for ukulele and classroom instruments progress from one chord and a downstroke strum to switching from chord-to-chord using a pop shuffle building skills sequentially. Each song shows the chord frames used, pictures of finger placement, suggested chord strums, and notation. Includes a digital access to performance/accompaniment audio recordings, audio examples of strums, and PDFs of singer and pitched classroom instrument parts.
Songs were originally in Music Express Magazine.
