Ukulele lessons for kids are the ideal perfect first instrument, to begin with. Primary schools all over Singapore has been conducting ukulele lessons for students at primary 4 level. This is no coincidence. There are plenty of benefits to learn ukulele! For instance, it takes only 1 finger to get into the C-chord position. Definitely a confidence booster for many!
The common belief of Ukulele as a toy is not true either. Rockschool, the UK-based examination board, offers to grade up to grade 8! Ukulele players such as Jake Shimabukuro and the up and rising Feng E are also changing the game at a rapid pace. The once toy-like instrument has been taken seriously and creating wonderful and beautiful songs.
The cost has always been a consideration for many parents too. Buying a $1000 piano after a week of the lesson can be really challenging. While we can see the child’s interest now, we cannot predict how long will they be interested. Ukulele starts from as low as $30! For those who can afford to splurge, $100 can get you a really good model.

The ukulele is ideal for young children from as young as 4 years old. We know many parents are afraid to invest in an expensive new instrument while they aren’t sure if their child even will enjoy playing music. Ukulele is a great place to start because it can be so affordable.
Because learning the ukulele is less complex than learning the guitar or piano, it can be a great instrument for young learners. They can more quickly begin to play the songs they love.
As well as the small size, the easy to use fretboard is another reason why the ukulele is perfect for young children to learn. Each fret is clear to see, and the strings are easy to press down. Unlike a steel-string guitar, your child won’t get sore fingers from pressing the ukulele’s softer, nylon strings.
With the right teachers to guide your child, lessons will be enjoyable and satisfying. You’ll find our teachers committed and dedicated.
