Why the Ukulele? Well, as small as it is, it is a real instrument that kids don't have any trouble holding, handling and playing. Because of it's size, finding frets, strings and playing basic chords becomes manageable and very enjoyable for 5 year old. We will be learning favorite children songs that are fun and easy to grasp. The CD contains 11 traditional songs that blend together with the story line from Do Re Mi Ukulele Adventure Musical Coloring Book. Ipo and Kailani, our Hawaiian friends will take us on a beautiful tropical journey. We will join a Hawaiian marching band, audition for the Hana Hou Ukulele Band, take a Yellow Submarine ride to Maui and much more... The book contains music theory sections teaching us note values, strumming patterns and playing melodies on the first string. Do Re Mi Ukulele Adventure is a unique blend of fun and education for young age.
