INNOVATIVE – what makes the Ukulele for Children method special?

Ukulele for Children books are written for linear (low-G) tuning but also includes re-entrant (high G notation.  Linear tuning expands the melodic range, enables the pitch to move from low to high just like other instruments that kids are already familiar with, introduces note positions on the treble staff that correspond with their physical placement on the instrument in a logical order that makes sense right away and allows for more duet parts.  Switching out your 4th string to low-G is highly recommended.

            

Written by Christina O’Brien with the help of James Hill with these goals in mind:
- develop music literacy in young children
- foster creativity while introducing music theory concepts
- make music FUN

Digital Class Packs and Ukulele/UFC Bundles available.

MORE ABOUT BOOK A

58 full color pages with songs, theory, and illustrations.  Wire coil binding makes it easy for little hands to place the book flat on a music stand or table. 

The print version is extremely hands on, with prompts for students to identify and circle key concepts in the songs, as well as theory questions with fill in the blank answers. 

Students will take ownership of their book and their learning as they advance through the pages.  For teachers and students wishing to spend more time on a particular concept, there are additional resources that can be printed from the accompanying website as well. Companion audio tracks are also available for purchase.

Book B expands and builds on the skills and concepts already learned in Book A. This printed hard copy is perfect for young students as the wire coil binding ensures the book will sit flat on a music stand or table. The new repertoire in Book B teaches notes and chords on the first, second and third frets, major, minor and blues patterns, and some common chord progressions. The memorable characters are back as the child-centered approach continues with funny song lyrics, repetition of concepts, hands-on activities and reinforcement of proper technique. Book B follows a pace that will be intriguing and engaging, build a strong musical foundation and allow opportunities for differentiation if you are using it in a group setting.

For teachers and students wishing to spend more time on a particular concept, there are additional resources that can be printed from the accompanying website as well. Companion audio tracks are also available for purchase.

REVIEWS

Previously, I had used other books to aid in teaching 5 and 6 year old students, but felt they were lacking... Ukulele for Children is a book that covers the bases pedagogically - it explains concepts in a way that's age appropriate that children can easily understand. Children aren't just learning ukulele - they're learning music! The graphics are nicely laid out and the illustrations engaging. The early reception of this book from my students has been great - they really love the characters!

I wholly endorse this book for teaching early learners of not just the ukulele, but music!

I'm a music therapist also teaching ukulele to young learners. I'm thrilled at the ways Christina has infused multisensory learning methods to help kids learn the ukulele and treble clef notation. I've only used one lesson so far (just received the product) but it is perfect for my 8 year old student.

Studio Teacher and Music Therapist - New Jersey

I am enjoying the Ukulele books very much. They are interactive and hands down one of the best introductions to music that I have seen in 35 years of teaching music.
