The internet is overflowing with ukulele sites. Some are great, others not so much. Here are my favorite ukulele sites for 2019.

Created by uke player Brett McQueen, UkuleleTricks.com offers a number of free starter lessons as well as lots of books and premium paid content. A great resource for beginners who are serious about getting started with the ukulele.
Ukulele instructor Jim D’Ville teaches in-person workshops across the country. If you can’t make to one of his workshops, Jim’s website provides a wealth of lessons and ukulele news.
Brad Bordessa’s site is absolutely packed with lessons and songs. He also has a lot of great info about gear, performance, and recording. All this, packaged in a beautiful, easy-to-use site.
