Benefits of using the Ukulele in a general music class:
Anyone can look up ‘how to play the Ukulele’ on Youtube and find loads of instructional videos showing you how to play a few Ukulele chords. That is why this isn’t what this product is about.
There are also a lot of books you can purchase with tunes such as ‘You are my Sunshine’ and ‘Row, Row, Row your boat’. That is why this product doesn’t have those songs either.
What this curriculum does have is a series of structured activities to help the students learn the chords in a logical, step by step manner.
The challenge for the students isn’t really playing the chords… its being able to change chords quickly enough. For that reason the tracks we have put together are structured around gradually building up the skill of moving from one chord, to two and then three, and increasing the speed of change slowly and carefully.
