A Collection of Favorites for Young Players
We love ukuleles! They have such a wonderful, unique sound and they are accessible for players of all ages. We also love classical music – all those incredible, recognizable melodies. It's so important to introduce these melodies and their composers to our young students.
As with the collection Classical Bells, we have taken six well-known classical compositions and arranged them to work with, in this case, ukuleles. The ukulele parts are designed to fit in with the original work, but the chords used are all easy to fairly easy to play.
Your young players will feel like they are part of the orchestra when they strum along with the high-quality accompaniment tracks. These recordings use real instruments played by real, professional musicians.
Classical Ukuleles is available in four ways: printed Teacher's Handbook with CD, printed Teacher's Handbook with downloadable MP3s, downloadable PDFs and MP3s, and, for the best of both worlds, our CONVENIENCE COMBO KIT, which includes both print/CD and downloadable files. This unique, classical collection includes the following (chords in parenthesis):
- Beethoven's Ukulele Minuet (C, D7, F, G, Ami)
- Ukulele & Trumpet Voluntary (C, D7, F, G)
- Rossini's Ukulele Overture (C, G, Ami)
- Vivaldi's Ukulele & Mandolin Concerto (C, F, G, Ami)
- Haydn's Ukulele Serenade (C, F, G, G7)
- Eine Kleine Ukulele Musik (C, D, D7, F, G, G7, Ami)
