This kit has everything you need to teach your students how to play the ukulele. This method uses solfa and folk songs to learn picking on the ukulele rather than strumming in order to develop instrument playing skills along with their singing skills.
I am a Kodaly certified teacher and I wanted to teach my 6th graders how to play the ukulele, but I couldn't find any ukulele curriculum that used Kodaly principles of singing and folk songs so I developed my own.
I was inspired by Warren Dobson at http://ssrsbstaff.ednet.ns.ca/wdobson/index.htm and set to work on my own curriculum.
NOTE: In this kit, every song is written in the key of C and used a low G string rather than the traditional high G. I used this key with my students so it was easier to sing along and it expanded the range of the ukulele.
