The Musical Ukulele by Colin Tribe - a tutor book for individuals, small groups or whole classes. Ideal for whole class teaching with 'wider opportunities' in mind.
Studying the ukulele is a very effective way for anyone to rapidly become a performing musician. Through using this book you will learn to sing and strum, play single-line melodies, chords and be introduced to fingerstyle playing. Many different styles of music are included, from world folk song to classical music, including such titles as Ravel's 'Bolero' and Dvorak's 'New World Symphony' as well as children's songs.
The book guides you through what you need to know about the language of music as each new element is encountered. Each piece is written out in music and tab, with both chord symbols and chord boxes.
All the pieces are clearly demonstrated on the two companion CDs, which contain repetition so you can really get into each piece. The book is wire bound, so will open flat on the music stand for ease of use.
Highly structured. Learn to read music as you learn to play the ukulele. See and hear the author playing over 350 pieces on YouTube at www.youtube.com/user/colinrtribe
