Small Kid Time Ukulele Songs Review

www.UkuleleMeleOnMaui.com

Mele Fong presented “Small Kid Time Songs” for the June Sing-Along with Mele Fong series on June 15 on Maui.

“I’ll be back,” commented a first time participant after the program.

Nineteen people signed up for my monthly Sing-Along with Mele Fong Series – Small Kid Time Songs on Friday, June 15, 2018 at Kaunoa Senior Center for adults 55 and better on Maui.

During the new “Hawaiian history moment of the month” I talked about Kamehameha Day, one of two state holidays honoring Hawaii’s royalty. King Kamehameha united the islands into one kingdom in 1810. Read more by clicking here.

The “Sing-Along with Mitch Miller” format of projecting the song lyrics and ‘ukulele chords on a screen at the front of the room, and having my husband provide the u-bass line to fill in the lower tones to the higher pitched ‘ukulele worked great! We continued the routine of learning how to pronounce any Hawaiian words in the songs, the story behind each song whether it was Hawaiian or not, and playing each song twice to reinforce what we learned.

We sang all ten planned songs including two with Hawaii roots. Here is the song list with my unique ‘ukulele strums:

  1. Froggie Went A Courtin’ – Hum Ding-Ah Strum.
  2. The More We Get Together – 2 Waltz Strums.
  3. She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain – Hum Ding-Ah Strum.
  4. Days Of My Youth – Latin Strum.
  5. You Are My Sunshine – Hum Ding-Ah Strum.
  6. I’ve Been Working on the Railroad – 4And/Tom Tom Strums.
  7. Kuu Home o Kahaluu – Latin Strum.
  8. Oh Susanna – Hum Ding-Ah Strum.
  9. Que Sera, Sera – 2 Waltz Strums.
  10. Hawaii Aloha – Morse Code Strum.
