Why 21 Ukulele Hymns?
I’ve thought a lot about this question. What are some of the uses of a book of hymns for ukulele? Who will enjoy this music?
What comes to mind, is that many churches close as older members die off and newer, younger people do not join congregations. To counteract this trend, there is a need for music that will unite and excite people. Ukulele music will bring people to church buildings to sing and to play with a joyful noise. What better than a group of hymns for the ukulele? This music builds community by bringing together people of all ages. Churches can have ukulele choirs combining children and adults.
Folks can also use the ukulele to sing to the youngest children or to visit the elderly. Familiar hymns can make people feel connected with their community. 21 Easy Ukulele Hymns can also be used at summer music festivals and camps as a source of traditional music reimagined for the ukulele.
Do you enjoy playing and singing hymns? If so, what are some of your favorites? Do you play ukulele in your church or in a ukulele choir? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments.
