Suggestions from the tutor:
When buying a ukulele, I would advise a Makala or a Kohala as the cheapest to consider. Anything cheaper and it's buyer beware - they can be difficult to tune and don't produce such a nice sound. Kala is also good but a little more expensive. As regards size, I'd recommend a concert or tenor size to produce a good sound.
Note about left-handed ukulele from tutor Sonia: "My suggestion would be to buy a normal (right-handed) ukulele. This just means your fretting hand (the left hand) will be more agile than the average right-handed player (whose fretting hand would be their weaker one, the left). I think the ukulele is a wonderful instrument for helping us all to develop ambidexterity".
