    Group Ukulele

    BARITONE UKULELE for Beginners Now is your child’s chance to learn this exceedingly popular, easy to learn instrument! It is smaller, lighter, and has fewer frets than a guitar making it very beginner friendly. Also, learning to play this instrument first has been proven to provide an easier transition to playing guitar later because some chords will be familiar. Students will need a four string baritone ukulele in good condition (NOT a soprano, concert, or tenor ukulele). It is suggested to look in local music stores and reputable online sites for baritone ukulele brands such as Mahalo, Lohanu, Kala, or Luna for good quality, affordable instruments that have that deeper baritone sound. Open to students grades 2-5.
