The "uke" is experiencing a fantastic boom in popularity for good reason - it is affordable, portable, and easy to learn and fun to play. That's why I bought my first "uke" in 1992 (I had to special order it! ). Sadly, there are many instructors taking advantage of the boom and offering lessons when they have very little experience with it (some have wanted lessons from me in order to teach it - weird!). I have played soprano, baritone, and sopranissimo ukulele professionally for years. Let's do this!
