This groundbreaking work, specially designed for the music classroom, combines traditional and popular literature in a method that both teaches the ukulele and develops music literacy. Assuming no prior knowledge, the leveled content allows students to track their progress and teachers to reward benchmark achievements. Many popular pieces are written in the same key as their common recordings, allowing students to play along if they wish, and no singing parts use notation symbols that have not already been formally introduced. The book teaches students both how to read and write music on the treble staff but also offers opportunities to follow chord charts, improvise, and play by ear. By encouraging the development of these transferrable skills, Uke Can Do It 2 provides a solid foundation for lifelong music-making!

Philip Tamberino developed the first classroom ukulele programs in the New York metro area and has since conducted professional development for the National Association for Music Education, the New York State School Music Association, and area schools to promote the use of the ukulele as a school instrument. He is an elementary music teacher in public school and is also the author of Uke Can Do It!: Developing Your School Ukulele Program.Review:
Uke Can Do It 2!: Classroom Ukulele Method is the perfect companion to a ukulele program in the general music setting. The layout, material and musical examples are right in line with what we want students to learn and the students are having a wonderful time while they become musically literate. I highly recommend this book for anyone starting a ukulele program in their school." (Alison Tramontana, elementary classroom music teacher, Comsewogue School District, Port Jefferson Station, NY)
