The Academy of Music offers ukulele lessons for children as young as 4 to adults of all ages!
Our ukulele lessons are great for all ages. Whether you want to play folk music, Beatles, or Jason Mraz, our professional teachers will guide you through the skills of reading music, improvisation, playing by ear, music theory, and performing. Beginner ukulele students can expect to work on strumming chords, single note melodies, simple songs, and music theory. All ukulele students are encouraged to bring CD’s or their iPod to the lessons to learn their favorite tunes.
Ukulele lessons for children
We recommend ukulele lessons for ages 4 and up. Ukulele is one of the best instruments for children to start on. Many young ukulele students switch to the guitar when they are older. If you have a 4 – 5 year-old child who wants to learn the guitar, we would recommend starting with ukulele lessons first. The ukulele and guitar are played the same way, but are simply tuned differently. The smaller size if the ukulele makes it easier on little hands, and makes the transition smoother if they choose to switch to guitar.
