Join the Ukulele Revolution

Hello friends!

Usually I sing and play the conch. In our most recent webisode, In Search of the Blue Kiele, you may have noticed that I played the ukulele! When the Rainbow Pals get together to play music, we are always trying new things. My friend Koali has been teaching me how to play. He is a whiz at the ukulele! It was a little difficult to learn, but it’s worth it! I wrote my first song (“Happiness“) and now I’m working on another one. Adventure is the spice of the tropical life!
The ukulele is a four-stringed instrument that looks like a guitar, only smaller. But gee — it sure is powerful! The ukulele is a very versatile instrument. That means you can play it in many different ways and make lots of different kinds of music! I would like to dedicate today’s blog to a collection of ukulele music that I’ve come across. I hope you enjoy it!

It’s easy to record ukulele songs and upload them to YouTube. Lots of people do it!

The ukulele is not just for big kids, but littler ones, too!

Send me a message if you have a uke video of yourself, I can’t wait to see it!

Thanks for reading!
