Videos on Ukelele Master   Leave a comment

Many of my students likely already know about Jake Shimbukuro, the Ukelele master.  PBS has some really great, short videos about him that are in English.  They are labeled as Levels 6 though 12, but I really encourage all but my beginner students to try to watch, because Jake and the other commentators (at least on Video 2) speak slowly enough, that I think many of my students will be able to follow what he is saying.  There are about 9 videos.  After you watch 2 videos, you have to sign up for a free PBS account, but I encourage you to do so, because PBS has many more videos at all levels that are great listening practice.
