So you're interested in the ukulele? How exciting! The ukulele has a bright, unique sound that often comes across as sounding uplifting when you strum it. It can be the perfect instrument to express yourself.
Ukuleles are smaller instruments that get their trademark sound from a mixture of different things. From their plastic strings, to the wood they're made from, to the kinds of notes they can make, ukuleles are distinct in both their sound and cultural origins.
Did you know that the University of Illinois did a study on why ukulele chords and notes are known as "sounding happy?" They found that due to its size, string type, and construction, it puts out sound that's higher in pitch and frequency yet still enjoyable. That frequency is commonly related to sounding "sweet" or "happy."
If you're interested in exploring these much-loved instruments through music lessons, you've come to the right place. And if you're still uncertain if ukulele lessons are for you, keep reading for more details.
