The ukulele is quickly becoming one of the most popular instruments to learn, and for good reason. It is a great beginner instrument for everyone, especially young children, because it is small in size, light weight, inexpensive and easy to play for all ages. Kids, teens and adults can learn to play the ukulele quickly. Don’t let that miniature guitar fool you. You will learn songs to get you started and the secrets to allow you to play most any pop and folk song. Let us show you how fun and easy it can be.
With the success of artists like Grace VanderWaald on America’s Got Talent, people are discovering that the ukulele is a beautiful instrument with a low barrier to entry. Most of our guitar teachers play and teach ukulele as the two instruments have much in common, including tuning which makes it so chord shapes and scales move easily from one to the other.
The uke is often thought of as a good alternative to guitar for young kids and this is definitely true. First of all, it’s smaller and the strings are made of nylon instead of steel which is easier on little fingers. The nice thing with this approach is that much of what is learned is transferable to the guitar later.
Ukuleles come in different sizes. Soprano (the smallest size) is the most common, but you can also buy a concert, tenor, or baritone ukulele.
The baritone ukulele actually has different tuning than the others – it’s tuned the the same as the highest 4 strings of a guitar, making it easy for guitar players to learn!
