Movie Reviews

Excellent beginner ukulele instruction with good DVD menu de

"I adore Teresa Bright's music and was so happy to find this video as I am just learning to play the ukulele. The instruction is very clear although I was disappointed that the DVD did not include a chord sheet and music sheets of the 3 songs you learn to play (and sing along with her).

The DVD includes a very easy to use menu system including:
Introduction:
Includes tuning and strumming instruction and practice.
The C chord series:
Teaches you C chord series, practice the series together, and play "Ho'olauna Aloha"
The F chord series:
Teaches you F chord series, practice the series together, and play "Healoha no Honolulu"
The G chord series:
Teaches you G chord series, practice the series together, and play "Lehua Makanoe
Review chords:
A quick, easy way to view all the chords used throughout the instructions

I like it that she does a tuning check before beginning the song to make sure it sounds good as you play along with her while she sings. Each item in the menu takes you to a secondary menu where you can individually pick out any of the items (learning chords, practice chords, tuning check, and playing the song).

My all time favorite song of Teresa Bright's is "Nani Kaua'i" on the Makaha Sons & Friends "Na Pua O Hawaii" album. I was really hoping to learn that song on this DVD and will look for a music sheet as this is a very beautiful Hawaiian song.

Also, I highly recommend "Jiminy Kokopo's Ukulele Sing and Strum Fun Book" for all age groups that are starting out with the Ukulele. I will have a review on the book in the very near future.

Mahalo.
