About The Uke
The Ukulele originates from a guitar-like instrument brought to Hawaii in the 19th century. It burst in popularity throughout the 20th century with artist from Tin Pan Alley to Elvis. Recently it has surged in popularity withIsrael Kamakawiwo’ole‘s medley of Over The Rainbow and What a Wonderful World. There are many different kinds of Ukuleles; most have four strings but there are Ukes with up to 8 strings. The four most common sizes are Soprano, Concert, Tenor and Baritone. The Soprano is the considered the standard Uke and is also the smallest. All 4 versions are usually tuned the same except for the low string on the Baritone is tunes an octave below the other versions. We recommend students with no experience to start on a Soprano or a concert version.
