Rock to ragtime, bluegrass to swing, tango, calypso and the blues - they're all here in instantly accessible songs to play straight away ~ whether solo, with friends, or with the whole class. Fully supported by video tutorials and audio performances and backings. The teacher's edition, BOOK+CD-ROM, contains a whiteboard e-book with embedded audio and video tutorials for every song, making it ideal for classroom teaching. The 25 pieces carefully progress from playing open strings (eg Stringalong Rag) to songs with one chord (Shortnin bread, A minor miracle, F major march) to two chords (Baboushka, Tab tango, Calypso strum) and finally three chords (In South Africa, Playing the blues). Finger-picking and strumming styles are all introduced step by step in pieces which are fun and stylistic. This is a thoroughly musical introduction to an immensely popular instrument, opening the way to independent music-making for all. Website extras for teachers include lesson plans with teaching support and extra song suggestions to sing and play.

Reviews

This is a tutor book that will teach you how to play the ukulele in all its forms - introducing you to more than just strumming three chords. Most ukulele books have a selection of songs with chords. This is fine if that's all you want to do. However, there reaches a stage when you want more than just chords and this book will fill in the gaps and launch you into a series of well structured 'lessons

- technical advice etc. I like it!,Ukulele Magic is the book we've been waiting for to help us deliver whole-class ukulele tuition in Lewisham schools. The pace is right, the video clips are extremely helpful, the design is clear and the music is catchy and written in an interesting variety of styles.,I'm very impressed with it, as are the children and teachers I'm working with. It makes a massive difference to have such a rich, well-presented resource as the e-book version, which I use in every lesson. It's been a massive help to have a book targeted at wider opps teaching and has definitely improved my ukulele delivery.,I use it for my small groups. Other teachers in Lewisham use it for wider opps. Everyone I have spoken to about it loves it.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
