More than a method book…
At the heart of The Ukulele Way is a series of six books that teach you how to play melody, harmony and rhythm simultaniously. Renowned performer and teacher James Hill de-mystifies this musical juggling act step-by-step with clear, well-organized lessons, helpful exercises and a wide selection of repertoire.The Ukulele Way covers:
- Scales and chords
- Single, double and triple strums
- Combining melody and harmony
- Arranging for solo ukulele
- Improvisation and more!
Of course, technique without repertoire is no fun so The Ukulele Way includes a wide range of popular, traditional, jazz and classical arrangements, each recorded by the author on the Companion CD (included).
But that’s just the beginning. The Ukulele Way is much more than a method book. It’s also an interactive website, a library of tutorial videos and a community of learners and teachers. Find out more at www.theukuleleway.com
