Why Play the Uke?

It's Easy to Learn

The ukulele is easier to learn than the guitar and other stringed instruments like the mandolin. Its soft nylon strings are gentler on your fingertips and don't create finger pain like guitars do. Plus, it only has four strings, which makes chord shapes and scales easier to learn.

It's Affordable

Buying a ukulele won't strain your wallet the way other instruments do. You can buy a nice new uke for around $100, and there are different body sizes (sopranoconcert, tenor, baritone)

It's Portable

It's the ultimate travel instrument. You can take it virtually anywhere. Toss it in the back of your car. Take it to the beach. Bring it on a plane. It's Fun and Friendly

It's Fun

The ukulele is an incredibly social instrument because it's not intimidating at all and can be played by anyone, young or old, musician or non-musician. Its happy, joyful tone make it a delight to play and accessible to everyone.

They Just Sound Great

The ukulele has a rich, warm sound that is sure to put a smile on your face and those around you. Songs Easily Adapt to the Ukulele. You can play most almost anything on the uke.
