Ukulele in the Classroom Book 1 Textbook

by James Hill & J. Chalmers Doane

Ukulele in the Classroom is a methodical approach to developing music literacy skills in school classrooms and other learning environments. The series of 3 books features over 100 carefully crafted arrangements of traditional music from around the world, works by great classical composers and popular songs, each reinforcing elements of an ever-expanding skill set.

Throughout Book 1 students are singing, picking, and strumming - by ear and by note, in unison and in parts - in the keys of C major and F major. Skills in Book 1 include singing, strumming, picking, note-reading, ear training, improvising, ensemble playing, and more. View the Book 1 Table of Contents (PDF).

Repertoire selections - most arranged in two or three parts - include traditional English, French, Chinese, Hawaiian, African, Chilean, and Canadian songs, as well as arrangements of works by classical composers including Brahms, Benedict, and Holst.
