Everyone has their own reason for wanting to play a musical instrument. But, why play the ukulele? Below is a list of my top 10 reasons that I choose to play the ukulele.

  1. It is easy to learn. I learned to play a song in a few minutes with just a few simple chords.
  2.  I can take it on my trips and play it by the beach or up on a mountaintop.
  3. It makes me and people around me happy.
  4. I can play any kind of music on the uke…jazz, blues, pop, soul,  country, oldies, or even Hawaiian!
  5. I have learned so much about music and music theory.
  6. The ukulele suits the size of my smaller hands so I can even play barre chords.
  7. The ukulele is affordable. I got started with a $40 ukulele that I bought at an outdoor market in Hawaii. 
  8. I have met so many amazing and wonderful people at home and in places that I have travelled. Ukulele players are very friendly and fun loving people.
  9. There’s no right or wrong way to play an ukulele, there’s only your way.
  10. I’ve never met a grumpy ukulele player.

I’d love to hear from you. What are your reasons for playing the uke?
