Kiwi Ukulele – the best beginners book
Do you want a beginners ukulele book that:
- Treats the ukulele like a serious instrument, and
- Treats the learner like an adult, not a child?
We recommend and sell Mike Dickison’s Kiwi Ukulele as the best beginners book for relaxed adult learning on the market. It covers techniques, tricks and trivia, as well as having one of the most comprehensive ukulele chord charts around.
George Hinchcliffe, from the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain says the following:
“This book has extremely clear and attractive diagrams which make using it interesting and enjoyable. The author knows about music, and communicating, and ukulele playing, and has obtained information, tips, and opinions from a range of well-known ukulele musicians. Conveys not just the ‘how’ of ukulele playing, but also something of the affection, reasons for enthusiasm, and craziness which are often present in the ukulele world. Worth getting for the beautifully information-rich drawings and diagrams alone.”
