The ukelele is a cool sounding and cute small guitar-like Hawaiian musical instrument that is currently exploding in popularity worldwide including Vancouver, Canada.
The ukelele is a real musical instrument that is easy to learn how to play and easy to carry around.
The ukelele is the world's most friendliest musical intrument : )
I TEACH MEMBERS MEMBERS ALL THE UKELELE CHORDS FOR ALL THE SONGS THAT WE PLAY AND SING.
I ALSO TEACH MEMBERS BASIC SINGING AND BREATHING EXERCISES.
MOST SONGS THAT WE PLAY AND SING TO HAVE ENGLISH WORDS, SO IF YOU ARE LEARNING ENGLISH, THIS IS AN EXCELLENT WAY TO LEARN ENGLISH .
