How To Play A Ukulele For Children
Fun Way Of Learning With Music Software
Everyone is now wanting to be a Ukulele player these days and there is a growing child interest in the instrument which is brilliant. The Ukulele is a fantastic instrument for any child to learn to play simply because it is pretty easy, has an amazing sound, quite small and fun and for parents it is one of the cheapest instrument you can buy.
If you trail through Youtube you can see plenty of videos now of children playing Ukuleles, some amazing and some just learning, check out Ukulele boy to be amazed, and this is because in the last few years the Ukulele has become the instrument to play with celebrities like Steve Martin, Kate Micucci, W.H.Macy and the amazing Pearl Jam Front man Eddie Vedder all exploring and promoting the Ukulele with amazing playing and albums.
Teaching A Child To Play
It is fantastic you have bought a Ukulele for your child and now want them to be taught or teach themselves to play it. This can be done a couple of ways.
1. YouTube. Use YouTubes tons of free teaching videos. The Only problem here is there would be no one to correct your child if they are doing something wrong, leading your kid to play badly from the start and never be corrected.
2. Lessons. You can pay for some private lessons. This would be the best option but the only problem here they can turn out very expensive depending on how long and how many lessons are required.
3. Use Music Teaching Software. This is a great option. There is a downloadable music software that is available that will do what both of the above can do but it will cost much less, be like a video game yet teaching and correcting at the same time making it fun and extremely interesting for the child.
The teaching software I am talking about is Beatnik’s Speak Ukulele 2 Course and this has become one of the most popular teaching programmes online and is amazing (I should know, it is teaching me at the moment) and very easy to use. It is an interactive teaching programme designed for beginners and is even perfect for children and is been used in class rooms and by private tutors.
As you can see by this site, I highly recommend Beatniks Ukulele course simply because I know it works, plus it has a huge cult following of fans from all ages. You can read a more in depth review and what this teaching software is all about by going here or just click on the information video to the right ===)
This is a great way to get any child to learn to play the Ukulele. It is fun, educational and most of all, inexpensive. You only need to download it once and then it can be brought anywhere, used any time and owned for ever which beats time consuming expensive lessons.
Just one more thing. If you are planning to purchase a Ukulele for your child, though they are cheap, do not go too cheap. Spend around 60 dollars for a decent one as the cheap ones sound awful and look useless. There are plenty of reasonable quality Ukes to buy. Start your kid off on the right track with a comfortable instrument in hand. Check out some excellent Ukuleles available here. Enjoy!!
