Ukulele-For Students


Every time you play your ukulele, you need to tune your ukulele. What does tuning mean? It means tightening or loosening the strings on your ukulele until they play the correct pitch. The reason you need to tune every time is because ukulele strings are made of nylon and they stretch due to being played or temperature and humidity changes. It can be tricky at first to learn how to tune, but don’t give up!
