While the ukulele is a real instrument which can be pursued to the highest level, it can also serve as an excellent transitional instrument for young children looking to move to the guitar later.
One of the biggest obstacles for young guitar players is the physical size of the instrument. Even with the smallest available guitar (1/4 size), very young children struggle with handling the instrument. The ukulele is much easier to handle and play. It is easier to get a “good” sound out of a uke. We can even tune a ukulele to be the same as the top 4 strings on a guitar in standard tuning, such that when moving to a guitar nothing changes.
At The Guitar Gym, we offer private ukulele lessons with 15*, 30, 45 or 60 minute lesson duration options.
We also offer small group ukulele lessons for young children which are 30 minutes in length.
Please note that we are very flexible with rescheduling and we provide lesson alternatives for you if you are unable to attend your regular appointment. Please contact us to discuss how we can help you, or request a free lesson and we’ll contact you.
*15 minute lessons are reserved for young children only. Please contact us for availability.
