Ukuleles are one of the easiest instruments for beginners to learn. Ukulele chords are simplistic and don’t require odd hand and finger movements. During music lessons, beginning ukulele students learn how to strum and pick, and soon they are making music on their own. As a first instrument, ukuleles teach kids about music and music theory. The ukulele also helps children develop eye-hand coordination as well as the independent movement of fingers. If you have a child who wants to eventually learn the guitar, starting with a ukulele often makes the process easier and less frustrating. It’s small enough for a child’s hands to easily manipulate. And because it is so small, a ukulele can be hauled around to practice and other places without issue.

What to Expect on your First Lesson

Your instructor will get to know your child. We will talk about goals musical preferences and interests.  Then we help them become familiar with their ukulele. Next, you’ll go over the names of the different parts of the guitar and talk about how to care for each. From headstock to frets and tuning pegs, you’ll want to get familiar with your new instrument.
