What makes a FLEA ukulele special for music therapy?

Same benefits of guitar, yet much easier for hospital PATIENTS to hold and play.

Guitars are popular instruments among music therapists. They are multi-sensorial. A guitar’s aural spectrum, physical vibration and fine motor-skill interactivity makes it a powerful all-in-one “tool box” across many music therapy protocols.

However, guitar is difficult if not impossible for PATIENTS to hold in a wheelchair or bed position.

Wood/glue construction and finishes make guitars sensitive to environmental conditions (temperature, humidity), physical shock and routine wipe downs for infection control.

FLEA Ukulele - a natural fit with pediatric hospital music therapy

A guitar’s metal strings are not as gentle on sensitive skin as a ukulele’s nylon strings.

Common guitar chords require three or more fingers straddling a wider fingerboard, whereas many ukulele chords can be formed with just one or two fingers.

FLEA ukuleles overcome these guitar hindrances without compromising fine/gross motor skill engagement, multi-sensory stimulation and emotional enjoyment.

Even PEDIATRIC PATIENTS can hold and play a “real acoustic instrument” firsthand.

These same features make a FLEA ukulele ideal for ANY beginner or player. They promote successful musicianship from the start plus an easier path to mastering guitar.
