A great social instrument, it uses similar chord shapes and motor skills as the ukulele, but because it has 6 strings, it has more volume and a larger range of chord patterns. They are lightweight, come in 1/2, 3/4 and full sized versions, so there is one suitable for everyone. We start all our students on the classical guitar, they are quick and easy to learn and children will be playing songs within the first 2-3 weeks. Because it uses a combination of steel and nylon strings it stays in tune longer, is easier on the fingers and is cheaper than a steel string. Expect to pay $100-200 with a wide variety of colours and designs available.
