The ukulele is an excellent introduction to stringed instruments for children as it is small enough for them to hold and is much more comfortable to play than a steel-stringed guitar or a violin. This set comes with everything you need to begin your child's musical journey, including a standard-sized soprano ukulele, a fabric bag for storage and carrying, a clip-on tuner, picks, a spare set of nylon strings, a user guide, a sticker sheet, and a video and e-book download. This is a high quality instrument made of a variety of woods with brass frets laid into the mahogany fingerboard, and nickel-plated tuning machine heads. The uke measures 56 cm (about 22") long. Musical instruments are excellent for the development of physical coordination, motor skills, sensory processing and a sense of rhythm.
