Learn A New Ukulele Song Together

Ukulele is one of the most family-friendly instruments. Family members of all ages and musical skill levels can enjoy playing the ukulele and singing along. It’s small and portable. Even a young child can strum a ukulele. This little instrument is a great way to introduce music to your family.


Learn a new ukulele song together as a family. Choose a song that everyone likes. Set a goal and a deadline. The goal can be a live performance to the neighbors or a recorded session for the extended family. Be creative and keep everyone motivated. Plan ahead and set up dedicated practice time on the family calendar.


Not sure how to start? Consider Populele - a real ukulele with a customized ukulele teacher and an extensive song library. A super fun way to take the first step or next step in your musical journey as a family!



Start a Family Ukulele Contest


Activities are more fun when there is friendly competition. Have family members compete against each other in learning ukulele songs. This is another great way to create fun family memories. Set up prizes for winners to boost motivation. Or even better, gather a group of families in the neighborhood to start a contest in your community.


An easy way to start a contest is to use Populele. Imagine playing “Guitar Hero” on a real ukulele. It’s possible with Populele’s Game Mode. Challenge each other in a ukulele-strumming competition. Learning is more fun with instant feedback and friendly family rivalry.



Write A Family Song Together


You do not need a music degree to write your own song! Just release the creative nature of your family! Write a family song together can bring so much joy, laughter and deeper emotional connections to your family. It does not have to be sophisticated. It can be a simple, silly melody, or an awkward, goofy song.  

Start writing ukulele songs together with Populele’s customized patterns. Light up your family performance with Populele’s LED lights.


“The one thing that kept our family together was the music. The only thing that our family would share emotionally was to have our dad cry over something the kids did with music.”

– Dennis Wilson


Start a new family tradition. Create fun memories. Bring the joy of music to your loved ones.
