We like to think of the UKULELE as a rather dapper little instrument in its own right (which it is of course!!)… as opposed to a diddy relative of its ‘grown up’ cousin the Guitar. And the Uke comes with four strings as we know, not six.

The Uke’s diminutive size (portability) and general happy-making sound (you simply want to hum along and kind of tap your toes) have no doubt been factors in the rise of its popularity over recent years – and its appeal for younger and older players in equal measure.

Is your student figuring out the basics? Then we have NME’s Foundation 1 or Foundation 2 exams. If he/ she is progressing then there is plenty of scope to test rhythm, how to sustain melody, overall musicality and so on, via our selection of Graded exams.
