Hello! Hello! Meet Emily Arrow, author of Kid’s Ukulele Songbook. She brings children’s books to life with the strum of her Kala ukulele named “Bow”. With her background in music education, she is revolutionizing how children connect with music and literature on her well-known YouTube channel.
Learn 30 Songs to Sing and Play
The perfect next step for kids with a basic understanding of how to play the ukulele, Kids’ Ukulele Song Book continues their musical practice with 30 new songs for kids to learn and play! With a quick refresher in the opening section that reviews the four basic ukulele chords learned in author Emily Arrow’s first book, Kids’ Guide to Learning the Ukulele, children will then learn and practice brand new chords and single notes to build on their existing skills.
From there, easy-to-follow guidance for 30 simple songs will have children strumming in no time – from Starlight Starbright and If You're Happy and You Know It to Emily's original singalong tunes! Kids can also create their own original songs using the songwriting template pages, use a practice chart for staying on track, cut out helpful and colorful chord cards, and even access online audio to play along with author Emily Arrow, making Kids’ Ukulele Song Book the ultimate continuation to expand and grow their ukulele knowledge and skill set! Author Emily Arrow has over 10 years of experience working with children and teachers in music education. An award-winning children’s songwriter, an official Kala Brand Music Co. artist, and popular YouTube personality, her work has also been featured on SiriusXM’s Kid’s Place Live, as well as Sesame Street Studios.
"This fun-filled book is jam-packed with advice, inspiration and activities to get beginning music-makers and aspiring singer-songwriters up and running."
