Ukulele is an easy, accessible, friendly instrument that can lead children toward other musical instruments and help them build confidence. This sense of achievement, plus the fun, social aspects and natural charm of the instrument can enrich any child's world. 

The activities are geared toward not just song learning and musical games, but listening to and cooperating with others, improvisation and lyric writing. At the end of the program, the students play a concert for their family and friends. 

The cost of a kid's ukulele is usually around $40 and no books are necessary, but an electronic tuner for $10-$20 is recommended. There are also free tuner apps readily available. If you are interested in borrowing a ukulele we can make recommendations.
