Compared to other stringed instruments, the ukulele is somewhat easier to learn, even for those without a musical background. It's a small instrument that is easy to handle and transport and is good for those who have physical disabilities or use a wheelchair. It is a happy sounding instrument that can serve as a fun and relaxing hobby for Residents at Minnesota Veterans Homes The program is being introduced in the coming weeks at both the Minneapolis Veterans Home and the Hastings Veterans Home.
