When Daisy started the new school term in September she was thrilled to hear that her class would be learning how to play an instrument. Her class is leaning to play keyboards at the moment and she’s loving it. She has always loved music, dancing and clapping along to daddy playing his guitar from a very young age. Daisy has always wanted to follow in her dad’s footsteps by learning the guitar so when a First Act Discovery Ukulele by Jazwares arrived for her to review she was very excited.
The First Act Discovery Ukulele has been specially designed for kids to get that authentic ukulele sound. The guitar-style tuning gears and nylon strings keep the ukulele in tune and sounding great. We have very kindly been given an extra First Act Discovery to giveaway to one of our lucky readers too ! Read our review then enter the giveaway using the gleam app at the end.
The First Act Discovery Ukulele is available in two designs, Black with blue stars and White with blue butterflies. They both have a traditional soprano-size body which is the perfect size for kids.
The nylon strings are nice and easy for kids to strum, they are soft, flexible and make a nice sound when played.
Daisy couldn’t wait to pick up her new ukulele and learn how to play. Daddy tuned it for her and away she went, strumming the cords and singing along to her own tune. Luckily we have daddy on hand who has been playing guitar for over twenty years, he has been teaching Daisy the basics. She has been getting used to holding the ukulele in the right position and learning all about chords.
Kids can benefit so much from learning to play an instrument, it’s great for improving coordination, memory and perseverance. It also creates a sense of achievement which is fantastic for self-esteem. Learning to play an instrument can seem like a creative pursuit but it’s actually a really good all round learning experience, incorporating maths, reading and comprehension skills too.
The ukulele is really good quality and very easy for Daisy to hold and play. I love that it looks exactly like an authentic ukulele and not at all toy like.
Daisy loves her new ukulele, we will definitely be getting Jake one once he’s a little older too.
