Alfred's Kids Ukulele Course
Alfred has long been regarded as a great method for teaching children an instrument, and this ukulele course is no exception. Filled with fun illustrations, this book uses familiar children's songs to teach the the skills and chords necessary to lay a solid musical foundation.
Course 1 starts with a simple C chord, learning 4 chords by the end of the book, intermixed with plucking individual notes, rests, half notes, and the staff. Course 2 picks up with a review before moving onto dotted half notes, ¾ time, more notes, tempo, the key of F, dynamics, eighth notes, and two more chords. Books are softcover with 38-44 pages each and are available with either a video DVD or online access to audio that corresponds with the text book. Laura
