Ukulele & Baritone

Jolly Roger Ukulele and Baritone Ukulele

On this website, you will learn to play ukulele at a high level even if you're a total beginner to music or the instrument. You will play with a far more sophisticated musical toolbox than most people ever learn on ukulele. You will also learn how to teach others (the right way) to play ukulele.

You're probably going to scan down this sheet looking for something "cool" to play. That's the wrong thing to do. Start with Frère Jacques ... it's the key to everything else. You should start at the top and play everything in sequential order, and in so doing you will build the proper toolbox of skills. Don't skip around. Do them all. If you print out the sheet music, punch the left-handed pages on the right side so you can see two pages at once.

Sound Files: The MP3 files are to your right. (Or down below if you're on your phone.) You can and should download them and listen to them one zillion times. You should always listen to the recording of a song prior to attempting it. You should also use a tempo slowing app and play along at a slow pace before increasing the speed.

You might want to peek at the Teacher's Resources page. Once you can play in this style, you'll want to teach it to others.
