Ukulele in the Classroom is a methodical approach to developing music literacy skills in school classrooms and other learning environments. The series features over seventy-five carefully crafted arrangements of traditional music from around the world, works by great classical composers and popular songs, each reinforcing elements of an ever-expanding skill set.
Throughout Book 1 students are singing, picking, and strumming – by ear and by note, in unison and in parts – in the keys of C major and F major. Skills in Book 1 include singing, strumming, picking, note-reading, ear training, improvising, ensemble playing, and more.
Repertoire selections – most arranged in two or three parts – include traditional English, French, Chinese, Hawaiian, African, Chilean, and Canadian songs, as well as arrangements of works by classical composers including Brahms, Benedict, and Holst.
