   Anyone who fancies themselves a moderate to good singer at sometime will think about an accompaniment instrument to play while they sing the melodies that they have learned and love.
Some musicians choose piano, some choose guitar or others like to play them all.  However, in recent years more and more people are choosing the ukulele or “uke”.  The Uke is arguably one of the easiest of the stringed instruments to learn with some chords using only 1 note at a time fingering! This renders the uke a great choice for even the most musically challenged!
Scholars agree that learning a musical instrument can ward off life threatening stress and induce a state of ‘well being’ which is often missing from our fast paced world.


 
Here are 3 ways that the Ukulule can literally change your life!

#1 Reduce stress and induce a sense of well being. Playing music will lower your heart rate and release endorphins in your brain that will bring you to a relaxed state.

#2 Provides a measure of accomplishment. Mastering any musical instrument will elevate and increase your self confidence and self worth.

#3 Enables you to add dimension to your social activities.  Just start playing and watch your friends and family jump in and sing along!
