Could this be the newest fad for music therapists?
On a recent trip to Guitar Center I came across the most adorable instrument. And by “adorable” I mean compact, great sound, fun and interesting instrument…it is called a guitalele ( I like to pronounce it ghee-ta-le-le). It is a guitar-ukulele hybrid….enough said. Apparently the guitalele has been around for a few years.. ….but I had never really seen anything like it so I thought I simply must blog about it! It has all the amenities of a ukulele:
with the familiarity of the guitar:
same chord fingerings as guitar
With the popularity of ukulele on the rise this instrument has “emerged” at just the right time. Many music therapists love to pick up new instruments, but with busy schedules it is hard to take the time to learn something new like ukulele. The guitalele is a chance to bring in the sound and size of the ukulele while not having to take the time to learn a completely new instrument. Yamaha makes this wonderful instrument available for only $99!!!! I highly recommend this instrument.
