7 days to go until my new book and CD Ukulele School is launched

I had a great day today at Ginger Dog Recording studio. We filmed the last of 12 video's that will accompany the CD rom that comes with the book. Each video is a tutorial for one of the 12 fab songs in the book. Its a really exciting project and if you are teaching ukulele in schools, you need this book. It allows teachers to adhere to the National Curriculum whilst teaching the ukulele in a fun way. It even comes with lesson plans. We are launching it with the publisher (Kevin Mayhew Ltd) next Wednesday at the Music Education Expo at Olympia. If you are about be sure to come and say hello at the Kevin Mayhew stand. I might even play you some ukulele !
