    There's something so soothing about strumming an instrument. This ukulele provides the perfect outlet for those restless fingers. I tuned the ukulele first, which was easy using the included pitch pipe and instructions. Then I practiced playing the 20 different chords from the instruction sheet. This ukulele is good quality for the price. It has a wooden (compressed) body , the strings are made of strong plastic, and the other components (like the tuners and frets) are made of metal or plastic. It provides a pleasant tone when played, with a nice round depth and warmth to its sound. The ukulele measures about 21" long and 2.5" thick. You'll have hours of fun with this jovial little instrument! –Chad

      Teach yourself this charming little instrument in no time at all! This quick and simple program presents the details of the instrument itself, basic rhythm, strumming, and simple chords. Heavy music theory is absent from the program, making this great for the student who wants to learn ukulele as an additional instrument or just as quickly as possible, not necessarily for the student who wants to build a solid musical education. While not necessarily written for a younger student, the information is presented clearly enough that almost anyone could learn quickly, child and adult alike (Parents: why not learn alongside your child?). The 48 page book contains pictures, chord charts, and simple sheet music that correlates with the included DVD to accommodate multiple learning styles. 48 pg, sc. – Laura

    Let’s face it: the songs in instrument-learning books, while valuable, are not very fun to play. What IS fun to play is a song that everyone knows and can play or sing along to. That’s where this book comes in! If your student wishes to learn some songs that are a little more fun or wants to take a step towards “real” songs after some of their lesson books, these are the perfect fit. For each song, there are tabs (a notation method that shows which fret to play on which string: highly popular for learning to play more popular songs), chords, and even sheet music for your more classically trained student. Your student will be able to play old standards like The Farmer in the Dell, Jesus Loves Me, The Bear Went Over the Mountain, and 56 other songs. In addition, we also carry the guitar version of this book (#060680), so if one child plays the guitar and one plays ukulele, they will be able to play duets together, making for some great family fun and bonding time! Parents, the music for the song Ninety-Nine Bottles of Beer is included, so you may want to do a little creative editing and change the lyrics to “pop” before handing the book over to your child. Includes a chord dictionary for quick reference. 83 softcover pages. – Laura
