Dear Ralph Shaw, Our son, Andrew, is 7 going on 8 very soon. A few months ago we purchased your children’s DVD. It has become a very important part of our quality time with him as we struggle all together to learn how to play.
He really enjoys the DVD and learning to play. Thanks a ton. C. Roddan, Canada
Hi Ralph, I`ve recently bought both adult and kids complete ukulele course on dvd, me and the kids love them…..P.S keep up the good work, the dvd course`s are superb. P. Evans, UK
We had bought my nephew a ukulele and he wanted to learn it so he could perform in front of his music class at school. Using this video, he managed to learn how to tune the instrument and play a song within one week. He especially enjoyed the alternative verse to “Row Your Boat”. The instructions are fun and easy to follow. I highly recommended this for any child learning to play the ukulele”.

THE COMPLETE UKULELE COURSE FOR KIDS! is a great instructional tool. I am a music teacher.
I used Ralph’s DVD to teach myself ukulele and then I used it to teach my young students in summer camps. By the end of the camp week they had learned 6 songs!
Ralph’s presentation is cheerful, encouraging and entertaining as he leads us through each new technique and song. I highly recommend it. I. Beck Canada
Not just for kids!!
Beginner adults have found the easy and enjoyable teaching style on this DVD has been extremely helpful for them. If you are a ukulele newbie who finds other ‘adult’ courses a little tricky then this could be the one for you.
