Ukulele Kids curriculum

Ukulele Kids songbook

The songs in the Ukulele Kids songbook are only the beginning. We have a large repertoire of material that we had out as individual song sheets. 
For the primary grades we start with songs that can be played with two chords and build from there, sometimes with more chords added to the same songs.

Fortunately, an abilty to play 4-06 chords opens up a good range of material to these younger students. Their progress at this stage is very age dependent.
Six months can make a big difference. As we urge them ahead, keeping it fun is our priority.

With junior students we are able to progress more quickly and expose them to a wider variety of music. At the same time we provide more advanced teaching materials, additional chord charts for practice, an introduction to bar chords and variations on bar chord structures. With the wider range of song styles come different rhythms and strumming techniques.

Junior students particularly enjoy playing fairly current pop songs such as I'm Yours, Stay With Me and Riptide. often with newer pop numbers we have to
adjust a few lyrics to make them more appropriate.
