Learning any musical instrument can bring about a world of benefits for you. To begin with, it will increase your brain power - musicians are smart!
On top of that, you’ll learn discipline and a really cool skill. Nothing beats the feeling of being able to play a song that you - or better yet, someone else - can actually recognise!
With regards to the ukulele specifically, there’s also a really cool social aspect to it - it’s portable, lightweight and fun which makes it very convenient to transport - so it’s really easy to make friends with the ukulele. You can take it to school, to church, to the pub, to the park... Wherever there’s people, there’s people playing the ukulele!
The better you get at playing the ukulele, and playing with others, the more confident you will become - not just in playing music, but in other areas of your life. I’ve had messages from people who’ve said that learning the ukulele gave them the confidence to perform in talent shows or join bands, or play in front of their whole school - all kinds of things that they wouldn’t have been able to do before they started learning a musical instrument.
It can also open up some amazing opportunities for you! Take a look at me - by starting my own ukulele channel playing the ukulele, I ended up moving to California, giving up my day job, and having some incredible adventures traveling around the world and meeting new people along the way... all thanks to the ukulele!
Until next time, I love you all and I wish you... da best!
