Using the same music and fundamentals taught in Alfred's Basic Ukulele Method, easy and user-friendly Study Guide pages have been added to help you easily understand how to play. The Study Guide pages are almost like having a ukulele teacher sitting beside you as you learn the skills needed to perform popular and familiar music. They'll offer explanations, directions, and additional information on music theory, history, and songs and composers. As a special bonus, a nine-page supplement, Pathways to Becoming a Professional, is included at the end of this book. This essential guide offers invaluable tips to increase your skills as a player and as a performer. A CD is included so you can hear how the music sounds and reinforce concepts like rhythm, dynamics, and phrasing. Also, a DVD is available to give you the added advantage of video demonstrations for every lesson. Upon completion, you'll be ready to continue lessons with a teacher by using Alfred's Basic Ukulele Method, Book 2.
