The Ukulele is a small-guitar like instrument, which was introduced to Hawaii by Portuguese immigrants. The ukulele has become very popular with people of all ages. The ukulele is a great starting instrument, especially for kids who want to learn the guitar but are too small to hold a guitar. The ukulele is not only fun to play but it also sounds amazing!
Beginners will start off learning basic chords, strumming patterns, and keeping time. With that you will be able to play a plethora of songs.
