We love teaching this fun-to-play instrument to students of all ages! The uke is not just for Hawaiian music – nowadays you can hear people playing ukulele in many musical genres like pop and classical thanks to modern players like Jake Shimabukuro.
The ukulele dates from the 19th century as a Hawaiian adaptation of the Portuguese “machete,” a small guitar-like instrument introduced to Hawaii by Portuguese immigrants. It gained great popularity in the United States during the early 20th century, and from there spread around the globe.
Ukuleles have 4 strings (as opposed to the 6 strings of a standard guitar), and the tone and volume of the instrument varies with size and construction. Ukuleles commonly come in four sizes: soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone.
