Songs include Row, Row, Row Your Boat, The Lion Sleeps Tonight, Jingle Bells, and many more.
The accompanying audio downloads will help you tune up, get familiar with the songs, then play along with a full backing band. Some songs also feature Mike's handy hints so learning the Uke goes as smoothly as possible.

          A fun and colourful book for beginners. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. I bought this for my 6 year old son who was inspired to try the ukulele after his grandmother started playing last year. She is now 'gigging' with a ukulele band and is nearly 80 years old!

          Very easy method for leaning just one chord at a time and songs to play with that chord. I have introduced to 4 year old and she has picked up a few songs already. Great that you get the music to listen to as well
