Ukulele Popularity

If the band “Train” can use a ukulele to produce the song “Hey Soul Sister,” it must not be your granddaddy’s uke anymore!  Stanton’s is now stocking a ukulele kit that includes a good quality uke, a pick, and a beginner’s book with an instructional  CD.  It costs only $49.95.

The ukulele has been enjoying renewed popularity over the last few years.  Check out YouTube to see what folks are doing with the uke these days.  You may just want to get started with one of these handy kits!

 Jumpin’ Jim Beloff, ukulele player and collector, has many books for ukulele published by Hal Leonard. He has instructional videos, “The Joy of Uke” volumes 1 and 2.

Mel Bay Publications has many books for ukulele, as well.
The range of difficulty is wide, from beginning books to “The Cat’s Meow,” a book of 1920’s songs from Mel Bay that will work your fingers hard.

Shop Stanton’s for all your sheet music needs!
