My favorite store to shop for ukuleles in Utah County is Best in Music, 444 W 800 N in Orem. They have everything from inexpensive $30-40 ukuleles (depending on what sales are going on) to midrange ukes to professional models. For a beginner I would suggest not spending more than $100 on your first ukulele (you can always upgrade when you have some experience and know what you’re looking for).
If you’re not able to get to the store to pick one out, Amazon offers a number of highly-rated ukuleles under $60:
- Kala KA-15S Mahogany Soprano Ukulele
- Kala KA-MK-P Makala Pineapple-Style Soprano Ukulele
- Kala Makala Shark Soprano
- Lanikai LU-11 Soprano Ukulele
- Diamond Head DU-150 Soprano Ukulele Mahogany Brown
You’ll also want an electronic tuner:
UFO HUM Ukulele Youth Choir: This new ensemble will focus on singing while playing the ukulele. The choir will meet from 3-4pm on Mondays at Historic City Hall (31 N Church St. in American Fork) and welcomes all tween and teen age youth from 10-18. This choir will be tuition free, however students will need to purchase a ukulele and an electronic instrument tuner (average $40 to $70 expense for a beginner ukulele and tuner).
This performance ensemble will assume ‘no experience’ with the instrument, though more advanced players are welcome and encouraged to join and take a leadership role in the group. If your child would like to participate, please RSVP by sending an email with name and age of the participant to firstname.lastname@example.org
UFO HUM stands for Ukes for Others : Happy Ukulele Movement. The UFO HUM Ukulele Youth Choir will perform with the AFCC Concert Choir at our annual Christmas in the Rotunda concert and other events.
