Learning the Ukulele

The Ukulele is unique in that it’s a small instrument that can easily fit into the hands of young children. With only 4-strings and the small size, children that are too young for guitar can easily get started on the Ukulele.

Mental and Physical Health Benefits

While learning a Ukulele is fun and a great avenue for children to express their creativity, there are actually some excellent health benefits, both physically and mentally, to learning the ukulele at a young age.

Emotionally, children are rewarded with a sense of achievement, while at the same time exercising their social skills while surrounded by a community of children with a common interest.

Academically, students who participate in music see improvements in their math skills. Music theory, note reading, and rhythm comprehension are math related creating a synergy between the two subjects. Furthermore, concentration skills are improved as students focus on the many simultaneous aspects of learning an instrument.

Physically, students gain increased coordination. Plucking different strings with the right-hand and fingers, while the left hand and fingers move independently while also reading music, paying attention to the conductor, and listening to the other players in the group create incredibly strong coordination skills. And we’d be amiss not to mention the emphasis that is put on posture for any child learning an instrument. These are skills and conditioning the spill over into many aspects of life.

We’ve partnered with Korg Education to deliver an incredible experience for young children learning Ukulele. Take a moment to watch the video below that explores the results when we initially tested our Ukulele program!
