  • It’s Methodical—Teaches beginners to read music in the key of C in the first 4 frets of the ukulele, string-by-string, and note-by-note.
  • It’s Comprehensive—Other “learn to play” ukulele books leave it to the teacher to explain or the student to do the research on the basics. Holly’s Ukulele Method™, created over many years of teaching hundreds of students, answers ALL of the questions beginners have about:
    • Music notation
    • Music reading
    • Interpretation
    • Ukulele playing technique
  • Focuses on the Key of C: Only book on the market! Competitive books introduce a variety of keys in their “beginner” book. Students who thoroughly learn to read and play in the key of C, tend to have excellent retention of musical concepts and easily learn to play in the other keys. Holly’s Ukulele Method™ gives students a solid music background by concentrating each chapter on specific strings, notes, chords and techniques in the key of C through fun-to-play exercises and familiar songs.
  • Teaches how to read notes on the Low G string: Only book on the market! Learning to read and play a low G string gives uke players 3 extra low notes for playing a wider melody range in a variety of musical genres.
