by James Hill and J. Chalmers Doane.
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.
In Book 2 you guide your class through traditional and popular music from France, Italy, North America, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Ireland, Guatemala, and Scotland in addition to arrangements of works by great composers including Mouret, Vivaldi, Mendelssohn, Glinka, and Mozart – and those are just the highlights!
The majority of the repertoire in Book 2 is arranged for two or three ukulele parts (in addition to chordal accompaniment), each requiring a different level of proficiency. In other words, there’s something for everyone in each carefully crafted arrangement.
Skills and concepts introduced in Book 2 include the double strum, the chromatic scale, secondary dominant chords, blues improvisation, and more.
Ukulele in the Classroom Book 2 features over two dozen arrangements tailor-made for you and/or your music class!
