Ukes in the Classroom - Texas is a non-profit organization founded by Noel Tardy of UkeLady Music to teach Music Literacy - the Ukulele Way and for kids of all ages to have fun!
Music should be a core part of school curriculum. It used to be that way. Due to budget shortfalls and cuts, funding for music and arts have been drastically cut. Considering the high volume of research that confirms music helps kids learn better, it is not a prudent move by the schools. Educator Linda Cole puts it this way, â€œMusic and reading are both means of communicating. When children begin to learn language, it is processed in the brain first as sounds. Itâ€™s through the learning process children begin to understand what is meant by the sound and it is then translated into meanings. Music is an expression (language) of the composer as reading is music (language) created by the writer. Both are ways of communicating thought and emotion and through the learning process, music can make your child a better student.â€

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books! — Peter Rhee
