"If everyone played the ukulele, the world would be a better place."  - Jake Shimabukuro

 

 

I'm glad you've decided to play ukulele!   I've created this page for you to have easy access to the songs that I perform live along with the Jerome Ukulele Orchestra,  as well as to provide links to some of my favorite ukulele sites.

 

What's the best way to learn songs?  Play them with someone else!  AND: if you learn a song, teach it to someone else ~ share the love. 

 

It's easy to find ukulele lessons online ~ just Google 'ukulele lessons,' or  better yet, go to YouTube, type the name of the song that you are looking for  followed by the word "ukulele" : ex. "Eight Days a Week ukulele lesson."   You can also Google "easy ukulele songs', or any other phrase that you might think up.

 

Be sure to tell your friends and family about this page - soon we'll all be jamming with our ukuleles!  

 

And please subscribe to Tommy Anderson's YouTube channel :

So remember, anything you need to know can be found on YouTube, or if, stop by my store in Jerome for a quick lesson and jam session.    See you next time you're in Jerome!
