Classical Music for the Ukulele

  • There isn't a lot of Classical style music written for the ukulele! But that hasn't stopped a great many talented players adapting famous pieces for the instrument.

  • One of the MOST talented was a man named John King (1953 - 2008). Here he is playing 'Carol of the Bells' - simply beautiful...


  • This is my friend Samantha Muir playing a piece by Bach called 'Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring.'
  • It was arranged by the gentleman above, John King
  • It is usually played on the Organ, often in a Church. However Sam plays it beautifully on her ukulele.


So let's go and play it beautifully!
