Handy items every ukulele teacher should have on hand

So you’ve decided to share your skills with musically-inclined students looking to learn one of the most enjoyable instruments out there. Well done! Not only is the ukulele easier to learn than many other stringed instruments, but it’s also accessible to a variety of students of different ages and backgrounds.

That’s because ukes tend to be more affordable, use soft nylon strings that don’t hurt like guitar strings do, and have compact bodies that allow learners to reach the notes better. That gives teachers a solid foundation to build off. And with the right accessories, thoughtful lesson plans, and plenty of patience, your students will come back to you again and again.

Music instruction is an enriching career path if you’re patient, understanding, and willing to work odd hours to suit your students’ schedules. You’ll also need to market yourself and understand different learning styles and attitudes, but it’s well worth the effort once you’ve established your business.

While it can be hard to stand out from the pack, having a few thoughtful accessories with you during lessons can help you separate yourself from other instructors while creating a better experience for your client.
