Known as “the jumping flea,” the ukulele has made a comeback in today’s popular music scene. It’s small, has four easy-to-pluck strings, sounds pleasant and (once the pegs are in the right place) can never be played out of tune. All these qualities make it the perfect “starter” instrument for children. You’ll be able to play a song on the uke (and sing –no extra charge) by the end of the first week. By the end of the term you’ll be able to play in a performance (assuming you practice). Who knows what might happen after that? Laurey’s Ukulele Jam and the Annual Maui Ukulele Festival are two possibilities.
