"A Learners Point",
A Kid's Review
This review is from: Mahalo Soprano Ukulele Light Blue + GigbagI began learning a ukulele at 10, in my primary school. As I already played sax, the ukulele was a cheap alternative and an easy and fun instrument to play. I reccomend it to any child whose parents won't or can't buy them an expensive instrument for them to play.
If they can't learn ( if there isn't a group nearby) buy some books online for them, they should have the notes in. Or let them go on youtube!?
* Good quality brand, if you don't like the colour, this brands very good anyway
* Proper wood instrument, not a plastic one
* Strings are strong but not too strong as this makes them hard to pluck
* Great for kids but not for adults as can be a bit 'weak'
* Makes a great sound and a good beginner kit
* The ukulele is an easy but rewarding instrument to play.
* The bag that comes with it is flimsy and dosen't protect the ukulele very well. I reccomend getting one off Amazon or Aylesbury Music Cente, for about 10 - 20 pounds.
* You don't need a pick to play ukulele, but I usually use one if my nails have been just cut because their too short then and I can't play very well. This kit hasn't got one.
* You will need to tune the strings by twiddling with the top 'thingys'! You can look online for help with this.
Ok, I think that's all,
Hope this helps!
