About the Author
Jenny Peters is one part of the sister duo responsible for 21 Songs in 6 Days. She stumbled upon the ukulele after finding 45 of them in one of her elementary school classrooms. Convinced she could turn her find into more than a whole lot of noise, she designed a program to teach all of her students to play successfully with only 30 minutes of class time a week. No one was more grateful than the teacher in the next classroom. A former private piano teacher in Chicago with a Masters in Piano Performance from the University of Illinois, Jenny now lives in Highland Park. Married with three kids, she shares her home with three cats and more musical instruments than she would care to name. Rebecca Bogart is the second half of the sister writing team. An acclaimed classical pianist, performer and teacher, Rebecca has been passionate about the piano and music her entire life. She has played for audiences in Italy, taught master classes at Harvard and won more than a few piano competitions. She made her solo debut at Carnegie Hall in early 2014.

came out of my bucket list to do before it's too late! What with stiff fingers with arthritis and fat fingers, I
really thought I would never last through the beginning stages. However, I found that with an ounce of tenacity
and looking forward to playing something I could sing with, I opened your uke book and began. I was delighted
to my satisfaction to learn chords on an immediate bases and was able to sing a simple tune before my fingers
gave in for the first lesson! This is "amazing" as you kids say, and it truly is. I like adding one thing at a time
and using a beginners book that is easy to read with a warm, light conversational style.

I have looked at many, many "method" books for all 3 of these instruments over the past several years. When I started to read through this book, I was very pleasantly surprised. I was very happy to see how much was covered in a short amount of pages and that it was covered in a very logical order. A lot of the method books I have seen are not logical in my opinion. Not only does this book cover the concepts in a logical sequence, but each concept and techniques from the chapter before are reviewed before moving into the new concepts and technique. Having the videos examples for each of the songs and techniques and concepts was a very smart addition to the book. I have to think hard on how many standard method books actually have videos to watch for what they explain in their books.
It is impressive that you are able to learn 21 songs in just 6 days, using just 5 basic chords. The suggested strum rhythms are logically suggested for the song rhythms.
The chord changes are illustrated uniquely with font changes in the words for each change, but I thought this was a bit confusing, as I am used to having chords above the words for each line, so that I know what is next. With this method, I have to think a little harder on what chord is next and if I forget what chord goes with what font, I have to stop and check, whereas with a chord chart I can keep going. That's really my only "dissatisfaction" with this book, and didn't warrant affecting the rating.
The basic introductory items on getting setup to play with getting an instrument, etc., was comprehensively covered, so you can get ready to start right away.
Overall I thought this was very well done, a very fast read, and all explained in very simple ways rather than trying to understand alot of technical and theoretical jargon. I am looking forward to seeing the next one!
The book is basic enough that a first-time player should be able to learn a lot from it. I enjoy the ongoing emails from the authors, the video lessons, and the free additional song lessons. The additional materials are really important if you want to get the most out of the book.
I highly recommend this book for beginning ukelele players.
