Have you ever thought of getting a ukulele course for kids? There is now one available! Today I’d like to introduce the Ukulele Course for Kids from Raising Da Vinci. I have looked through the whole course, and you are going to love this!

Ukulele Course for Kids:

What you get is a 45-page book (in pdf form). It’s beautifully formatted with photos! It starts with an introduction to the ukulele and illustrations telling you what all the parts are, how to tune it, how to strum, and then some basic music theory (staff, treble clef, barlines, measures, time signatures). Page 5 gives the first lesson: strumming practice. Then, there is a 4-question quiz to review what they have learned so far.

Next, we begin to learn about how to play specific notes by placing the fingers of the left hand on the strings. There are photos showing when to put your fingers in relation to the fret. Then, we begin to learn how to play chords (the C chord to start with) and there is music to play with that chord plus a quarter rest. I love that there is a little lesson to learn how to draw a quarter rest and put them on a staff!

Now, it’s time to start playing songs. Most of the songs in this introductory course will be just playing chords while singing along. Along with learning the song with the book, there are also videos for each that show you how to play it and how to sing it. I’m sure kids will love playing along with the videos!

Ukulele Course for Kids

Here are the songs included in the course that the kids will learn to play:

  • Three Blind Mice
  • Skip to My Lou
  • London Bridge
  • Merrily We Roll Along
  • When the Saints Go Marching In
  • Yankee Doodle
  • Hot Cross Buns
  • Ode to Joy
  • Jingle Bells
  • Largo (from New World Symphony)
  • Good Night Ladies
  • Ode to Joy
  • Michael, Row the Boat Ashore
  • and others

One of the best things about this course is its comprehensive nature. There is more music theory than I mentioned above scattered throughout the rest of the book, and worksheets to be filled in. Two great activities that are included are suggestions on how to put on your own concert and how to write your own song, complete with blank staff paper!

I highly recommend the Ukulele Course for Kids. It’s unique and such a wonderful way to get younger kids started on learning a musical instrument. They can start on the ukulele when they’re in elementary school and move on the guitar when they get bigger. Or, they might decide that they love the ukulele and will want to stay with it!

  1. We don’t have a ukulele yet, but it’s something that several of my children are interested in learning how to play.

  2. My dyslexic daughter has struggled with piano, bit last year she picked up the ukulele and has been learning a few things from You Tube.

          1. Good day. 

            Sorry but I’m not satisfied with the course content. 

            I ask for refound. 

            Thank you

  3. WE have a ukulele that someone gave us, but none of us know how to play. I really want our kids to learn music and this seems a fun and easy instrument to start with.

  4. Sounds like fun. Wonder how easy it is to find a used ukelele! Do they come in various sized like other stringed instruments?

    1. I’m sure you can find one. Check some pawn shops in your area. I’m not sure about the sizes? Anyone else know?

    2. Abi, You can pick up a NEW ukulele for 30-40 dollars on amazon. Finding a used one shouldn’t be that difficult depending on where you live. Here is a link to one you might like http://amzn.to/29jFzYy

      As for different sizes, yes ukuleles come in 4 different sizes. Soprano (smallest great for toddlers or elementary age children) Concert, Tenor (my favorite size for me) and Baritone (which is tuned different than the first three)

      Hope that helps!!

  5. No ukuleles in our house but we have a guitar and a very musical daughter who would like to learn how to play the ukulele.

  6. I own a uke and my almost 3 year has expressed high interest in playing lately. His older sisters are learning to play as well. This would be perfect! Thanks for chance to win.

  7. This looks so awesome! At our co-op last year the teenagers learned ukulele and I was so jealous my kids weren’t big enough! But now, maybe I can teach them with this! Fun!

  8. I have a uke, but haven’t learned to play yet … was hoping to use it in Story Times (kid librarian, here!) and in my homeschool co-ops …

  9. I would love to try this! Learning uke alongside my oldest would be so fun. We brought a uke and a music book back from HI, but haven’t learned yet.

  10. My son (turning 7) said just this week he would like to learn to play the ukulele. My father played years ago – before I came along late in life. He has been gone now almost 13 years, but my son looks a lot like his childhood pictures. It would be neat if my son took it up 🙂 My niece, a sophomore in college, learned to play in high school (she plays guitar too) and she is really good. It is a neat little instrument and she says she can take it places sometimes where she can’t take her guitar.

  11. We have a musical house — guitar, piano, violin, mandolin, and drums. Our 13 yr would love to try the ukulele!

  12. We don’t have a ukelele but we do have a guitar, two electric guitars, 3 soprano recorders, 1 tenor recorder and a bazillion harmonicas in the house.

  13. My daughter, who is 7, wants a guitar but I think we should start with the ukulele since it is smaller and the course for kids will be very helpful in learning about it.

  14. We do not own one as of now, but plan to in the future! No one knows how to play, but we are going to learn!

  15. I just received a ukulele today! My niece has one as well and she has picked up playing it really fast and super easy. I’m looking forward to learning more and playing with her. Her younger sister is interested in ukulele now as well but doesn’t have any music experience yet so this would be great for her.

  16. We bought a uke with all intentions to learn and then we realized it’s harder to pick it up and just learn it if you don’t know something already. Yikes. Would love to learn with my son. Thanks for the opportunity.

  17. We do not have a ukulele! But my two older sons (7 and 9) recently learned to play “Row, Row, Row your Boat” on the ukulele at Music Camp this summer. I could see how excited they were about learning to play this instrument! Winning this giveaway would be so cool, because I would have a valuable resource and I could continue to indulge their interest in the ukulele.

  19. My daughter has wanted to learn how to play, but we don’t have a ukulele or know how to play one.

  20. my son just asked if we could fix the broken string on a ukelele we have and that he wants to learn to play. this would be great!

  21. Hello, is this course still available and how do I find it? I see a link for a ukulele adventure class from the veggie tales creator, but is it the same as the one from Da Vinci? Thank you!

    1. It doesn’t seem to be for sale any longer. I’ve linked to the other one because my youngest two kids did it, and we loved it!
