You will need a playable ukulele (soprano, concert, or tenor) and a way to record and submit a video performance to your instructor. Because of the differences in tuning, baritone and bass ukuleles are not appropriate for this course.
A ukulele is “playable” if it is the correct size for the ukulele player, is easy to press the strings down against the frets, and plays in tune up and down the fretboard. There are three common types of ukuleles: soprano, concert, or tenor. If you do not already have a ukulele, you may want to seek the advice of an experienced ukulele player, a ukulele teacher, or your local music store.
Most ukuleles are strung for right-handed players, so that the right hand plucks the strings and the left hand presses the strings down against the frets. Many left-handed ukulele players play right-handed ukuleles. Many ukulele players and teachers recommend that left-handed students try playing on a right-handed ukulele when first learning. However, most ukuleles can be restrung for playing in a left-handed position if necessary.
This course is taught using a right-handed ukulele. Students choosing to use a left-handed ukulele will need to adjust accordingly.
