Ukulele Magic: Pupil's Edition With CD (Paperback)


Special Order—Subject to Availability

Ukulele Magic is the perfect tutor for children and for teachers. Rock to ragtime, bluegrass to swing, tango, calypso and the blues—they're all here in instantly accessible songs to play straight away—whether solo, with friends, or with the whole class. Fully supported by video tutorials and audio performances and backings.

The pupil's edition, BOOK+CD, contains full audio performance and backing support and website video tutorials, making it ideal for individual practice. The 25 pieces carefully progress from playing open strings (e.g. Stringalong Rag) to songs with one chord (Shortnin bread, A minor miracle, F major march) to two chords (Baboushka, Tab tango, Calypso strum) and finally three chords (In South Africa, Playing the blues).

Finger-picking and strumming styles are all introduced step by step in pieces which are fun and stylistic. This is a thoroughly musical introduction to an immensely popular instrument, opening the way to independent music-making for all.

Ian Lawrence is a teacher, musician, and composer with longstanding experience of teaching music in primary schools. He has worked as an Advanced Skills Teacher and was for eight years the Director of the Deptford Saturday Music Centre. His Wider Opportunities ukulele classes and clubs in South London primary schools are inspiring and inclusive.
