The ukulele is easier for small hands.
The ukulele is physically easier than the guitar for small hands, yet with all of the same, solid foundations. A year or two in Kids’ Ukulele Band Levels 1 or 2 will make the guitar a breeze when your little guitar enthusiast is just a little older to really grasp the coordination to play the guitar. Or stay with the ukulele if you love it! Many of our students, young and old alike, have become impressive ukulele players ~ singing, strumming and plucking like a pro!
Our Young Ukulele Students are:
- Excited about playing this mini-guitar instrument and LOVE classes
- Learning how to read music, construct chords and pluck melodies and playing together as a band
- Developing stage presence and performance poise – we prepare this band for 2 concerts per year.
- Playing a rich variety of musical styles, including multicultural songs, folk songs, and mini rock tunes. Some of our tunes feature fun play-along back tracks too!
- Creating music as team players in a nurturing, dynamic environment

Why the ukulele and not the guitar?
At our school, we’ve had a lot of success minimizing frustration for instruments that are physically challenging in the beginning stages, for instance the guitar. We want these young budding musicians to feel like they can handle the week-by-week goals we give them. Therefore students feel and hear their small triumphs each week. Above all, this is the magic that encourages that child to stay engaged in their music lessons and continued improvement!
Ukuleles are fun, and the results are faster.
Now, we’ve made the transition even easier with the addition of our Kids’ Ukulele Band classes. Ukuleles are fun, and therefore the results are faster. This is a smart choice, an effective stepping stone to future guitar success.
Homework: Something to consider….Kids’ Ukulele Band has the same homework requirement as Young Musicians classes:
5-10 min. per day / 3 times per week. As a comparison, Guitar team requires 5-10 min per day /5 times per week minimum.
