Tune up & Animal Fair!

In this first lesson, I'll show you how to tune your ukulele, how to hold and strum it. We'll learn the different parts of the ukulele and how chords work.

Then I'll teach you a sweet children's song called Animal Fair that you can play with just one finger!! Yes, it's true!

Your first chord will be a C. I'll show you how to hold and strum your ukulele, how to tap it and twizzle it round like a pro! Let's get started!

Animal Fair


I went to the animal fair,

The birds and the beasts were there

The big baboon by the light of the moon

Was combing his auburn hair

The monkey fell out of his bunk (tap)

Slid down the elephant’s trunk (weeee!)

The elephant sneezed and fell on his knees

And what became of the monkey, monkey, monkey, monkey?
