When my daughter was five, she wanted to learn to play guitar. The problem: most guitars, even small ones, were too unwieldy. Not wanting to discourage her interest in music, I found the perfect solution: a ukulele! A ukulele is ideal for younger kids because it’s only got four strings, making it easier to learn notes, finger patterns, and simple, classic songs. It’s a great, fun way to master the basics of music, and it makes for an easy transition to other stringed instruments. Plus, your child learns to play a “real” instrument, not something that’s been cut down to a child’s size.
