Ukulele Lessons in Toronto
Ukulele lessons are very popular at ABC Academy with students of all ages, especially kids. We highly recommend ukulele lessons for young, beginner learners. Kids find it fun and easy to master music theory, as well as basic chord and strumming patterns on the ukulele. Why? The uke is portable and light with fewer strings than a guitar so it’s simple and comfortable for young learners to play. It also has a small neck and frets which makes it a perfect choice for small hands. Above all, the ukulele is a responsive instrument, beginner students are motivated by how easy it is to produce a great sound and excited when they discover that they’re able to play complete songs after picking up the basics in their first lessons.
If you are taking beginner music lessons and have never played ukulele before, we recommend starting with a basic ‘Uke’ with nylon strings – the softer strings will be easier on your fingers while producing a warm, mellow tone. As a result, you will be able to both sound great and build up strength in your fingers while you learn to play music at a comfortable pace.
Ukuleles are small, lightweight instruments which makes them easy to hold and carry. Since ukes have a thinner neck and frets than a standard guitar, younger students with smaller hands generally find ukuleles a very approachable instrument that’s simple to learn. Nonetheless, we recommend that they are properly sized at a trusted music retailer to ensure that students are always comfortable while playing. Our Ukulele teachers are able to help you learn to read music notes and Tab (Tablature), as well as teach you to play accompaniment and ukulele solos. We want to help you learn the music that you are interested in playing!
Buying or Renting a Ukulele
We will be happy to recommend a reliable retailer to set you up with the correct instrument for you. For younger students, this is really important, because kids usually start on instruments that are sized for them. While ukes are generally perfect for kids, it’s always best to be sure that the spacing of the notes and strings are realistic for their hand size.
