Ukuleles & Guitars

The Ukulele is a stringed-instrument originally from Hawaii that has similarities to the guitar. They typically have four strings that are made from Nylon. However, the Ukulele has a much shorter scale than the guitar and as a result has a higher standard pitch. Ukuleles can come in many different forms including; Soprano, Concert, Tenor, and Baritone. The Soprano Ukulele is considered to be the standard size Uke.

The Ukulele has recently seen a massive surge in popularity  - UK Sales of ukuleles have doubled to 250,000 a year. With many schools now teaching with Ukuleles instead of recorders.  Many artists are now using the instrument in their music.
