The ukulele is a four stringed musical instrument which one can strum and sing along. It is easy to learn, and is a perfect first musical instrument for any beginner level students who have no music background. It is perfect for kids as young as three years old, to adults who are retirees. Of course, anyone of any age can learn to play the ukulele successfully!
Moreover, the ukulele is relatively inexpensive compared to other musical instruments. One can get a decent sounding ukulele for less than a hundred dollars. It is also so fun to strum and sing along, either by yourself or with a group of friends.
The way we work and study has morphed a lot since year 2020, since COVID-19 disrupted our lives. Working from home is the de facto choice as opposed to travelling to and from work place. For school-going children, online academic classes have also become the norm. With time saved from the daily commute to and from work or school, many have started online music lessons. Among all the musical instruments, the ukulele is one of the most popular choice. If you are considering online ukulele classes, let me run through the things you need to prepare so you can maximize you lessons:
1. Select a suitable ukulele before you start lessons. There are different sizes available. Popular sizes are the soprano and the concert size ukulele. The former is suitable for children or petite size adults while the latter suits adult learners. Go you your local ukulele shop and try strumming a range of ukulele. Go for good, solid tone quality. You are playing music and need to emote through the instrument so a good sounding ukulele will motivate you to practice more.
2. Decide on a budget for your ukulele. A started ukulele costs around fifty dollars, and this can go up to thousands of dollars for premium hand-crafted ones. Find out from the ukulele shop the difference in the range, ask relevant questions so that you can make an informed decision on which ukulele to procure.
3. Decide if you wish to start beginner ukulele lessons by yourself, or learn with a relative or a friend. You can also form a group to start lessons. Starting one to one lessons enables you to progress much faster. However if you learn in a group, you will enjoy the fun of strumming together. If you decide on group lessons, do select your group mates carefully so you can enjoy the synergy during your online ukulele lessons.
4. Prepare a tuner so that you can learn how to tune your ukulele. If you are learning as a group, you can share one tuner. Ensure that your tuner is compatible for tuning ukulele or guitar. During your lessons, your coach will explain to you how to tune your ukulele. It is important to ensure that your ukulele is perfectly tuned so that you strum perfectly to your favourite songs.
5. Get a few guitar picks. You may find it uncomfortable to strum or pluck the strings of your ukulele. In this case you should prepare a few guitar picks for the lessons. As these are quite small, there is a tendency for ukulele students to lose their pick. So to be safe, you should prepare a few picks.
6. For your online ukulele classes, you should set up with a laptop or desktop as the screen is much bigger. This is especially essential if you are learning with a group of relatives or friends. The audio of your laptop or desktop should also be clear as you will be listening to your ukulele teacher’s instructions online.7. Find a conducive environment to have you online ukulele lessons. If you have a study or room at home, you can soundproof the room by drawing the blinds or windows, close the door so that you will not be distracted by outside environment.
