Are you interested in buying a ukulele?  There are a ton of great options out there ranging from very reasonable to outrageous.  I recommend getting started with an inexpensive uke but not one that is made to be a toy.  Diamond Head ukuleles are ones that I have found to be great for beginners.  They come in a wide range of colors to fit your personality and they are nearly indestructible, making them a good choice for a family with small children.  Believe me you kids will want to play the uke, play with the uke, put things in the uke etc.

Tuning is a tricky business.  It’s so important to get the tuning right but if you aren’t familiar with music and music theory it can be difficult.  We have found a free app that will help you tune your ukulele to the open C tuning that we use with our Uke in a Day method.  Open C tuning is not the typical tuning of a ukulele, so if you have another tuner and just follow the ukulele tuning it will not sound right with the Uke in a Day method of barring the chords.  The tuner we recommend you get is insTuner.
