Once the recorder was the first musical instrument that you learned to play at school, but these days the ukulele is becoming the most popular classroom choice. It's cheap, light, easily portable, suitable for children's small hands and can be used to play a surprisingly wide variety of songs and musical styles. Aimed at children, 'Ukulele for Beginners' is a perfect introduction. From choosing which kind of ukulele to learn to how to how the instrument, from learning the names of the different strings to playing first chords, from strumming patterns to finger-picking, and learning simple first songs such as 'Swing Low Sweet Chariot,' 'The Water is Wide' and 'Down by the Riverside,' the book guides the new learner through all the necessary steps.
