It’s no surprise that the popularity of the ukulele is growing rapidly. It is now ‘cool’ to play the ukulele. But what’s interesting that the ukulele is that it is popular for all ages. Seems it’s never too early or too late to start playing the uke. These and many other reasons would explain why everyone loves the ukulele.
Kids instantly fall in love with this tiny instrument. A seven-year-old child can easily hold a soprano ukulele without straining his or her hands. It is easy to carry anywhere.

Teenagers are also embracing the ukulele. I think one main reason is that it makes them look ‘cool.’ Ukuleles come in some sleek designs that appeal to teens. And besides making them look good, the ukulele offers teens a quick way to learn a musical instrument.
Everything about learning the ukulele is easy – from tuning to playing. The ukulele’s friendly nature ensures that teens’ interest is maintained long enough for them to learn how to play it well. By then it is so fun they can’t get enough of it. The ukulele, and music in general, helps develop teen minds. It’s a worthwhile change of pace from activities like television and video games.
Many of adults in my school are trying to learn along with the students. One of our teacher’s aides has helped students for many years with the recorder. However, she still can’t read music. Now she is learning ukulele along with the students, and she is doing quite well with it.
Our custodians like the ukuleles in the music room. After cleaning the school they come down to play them. Our third-grade teaching team posed as rock stars for a school picture. They are wearing sunglasses and playing the ukulele!
The final group of the ukulele fan-base is the elderly. For many old age is about calm and serenity. It’s about taking life easy, and learning at a comfortable relaxed pace. The ukulele provides an excellent chance to learn a new musical instrument with very little effort.
The sweet, calming and beautiful music produced by those four strings have a very relaxing effect on the mind. You could even form a ukulele band to get together and play some familiar songs while discussing the good old days.
