Perfect for the teachers of group and individual ukulele classes.  This book has the same content as the popular Ukulele From Scratch, but at the top of each page, there is a paragraph added that contains tips for presenting the material, including ideas for exercises, certain points of technique to emphasize, and optional pathways for moving forward or backward in the material to suit your particular class.
