The Ukulele

The Ukulele is a stringed and fretted acoustic instrument that's closest associated with Hawaii, although the instrument actually originated in Portugal in the 18th Century. Much like a guitar, it's played two hands. One hand presses down on the strings to alter the pitch of the note while the other picks or strums the strings either with a plectrum or with the fingers, allowing the musician to play chords and melodies.

The Ukulele has been used in Pop, folk, reggae, Jazz and Classical genres. There are four main types of Ukelele: Soprano, Concert, Tenor, & Baritone. We teach the Soprano Ukulele, also known as 'standard' ukulele. We explore popular songs, compositions and graded materials.
