Ukuleles are a beautiful addition to elementary music classrooms. Your students will learn chord progressions, vocabulary, and how to accompany songs and melodies. The unique timbre of the ukulele supports the child’s singing voice and allows students to hear and sing harmony accurately.
This book integrates ukuleles with other classroom instruments and has full Orff-style orchestrations for your Orff music classes. Some songs include creative movement, folk dances, improvisation, and unique folk style instruments. Some of these songs are perfect for your spoon, washtub, washboard, or limberjack players.
There are supplemental materials available online. You can download a booklet with copy-ready lyric sheets, individual song sheets, and projection-ready visuals for your interactive whiteboards and LCD projectors.
