Week 6 – Pre-Turkey

Hello all,

As some of you will have learned, ukulele’s can be taught using different tunings.  For those of you using ADF#B, you can use the materials from Alvin’s PD session as are here:

Uke Kolach

For those of you using the DGBE tunings (same as guitar), I have transposed Alvin’s resource so that you can use the material with these tunings.  You can download it here:



PSSD Library Resources:

As we begin increasing the music education resources available through PSSD, I would like to draw your attention to the existing resources that I have come across.

If you are looking for literature lists for elementary grade levels that connect reading and music, see the attached book bin lists:
