Ukulele Lessons in Montreal (N.D.G.)

The music school L’Académie is a reference in the west island since 28 years.

In the last 12 years or so, the ukulele, an instrument with Hawaiian roots, has had a renewal in popularity for many reasons:

  • Its little size renders it easy to carry (school, trips, summer camps, etc…)which makes it ideal for children.
  • Its basic chords are easier than the guitar’s. One can learn simple songs and develop rhythmic skills more rapidly.
  • It can be used as an introduction the the guitar as both are very compatible. The switch from one to the other is natural.
  • The repertoire is endless: trad. Hawaiian songs, jazz, blues, classical, folk, pop,
    rock, bossa-nova, etc… There must be a ukulele version of your favourite song !
  • It will be easy to join a group or jam with other musicians after only a few weeks.
