Introducing: The Wolfelele!!


I’m sure most of us, if not all of us, have heard of the ukelele. It’s a great little instrument that has been seen on stages, in homes, in the hands of youngsters, in the hands of grandparents, etc. It’s small, portable, and quite easy to learn how to play! Today I’m excited to share with you a brand new instrument though….called the Wolfelele.

The Wolfelele is similar to the ukelele – it is played in the same way with the same chords, fingering patterns, etc….but it is also incredibly unique and has some great features that really sets it apart!

First off, when you order your Wolfelele, it does not come ready to play. Instead, it is a Wolfelele kit and it gives you the ability to build your own and even customize your own instrument. When our kit arrived, my husband and oldest son got right to work assembling it. It took them one afternoon to put the Wolfelele together (and that counts the time it took for the glue to dry! 🙂 ) and after that we’ve been enjoying all kinds of great music – or attempts at music. *wink*

Wolfelele’s has a mission that I love. They strive to offer folk festival planners and music teachers a comprehensive ukelele kit that can be used as a part of festival activities or classroom learning. As a music teacher myself, I can really appreciate this mission and love that it’s a way for students, children and even adults to enjoy some ‘hands-on’ experience with building a hand-crafted string instrument that both looks great and sounds great once it is completed. I love seeing that sense of accomplishment in my son’s eyes too. And I must say that I believe he plays the Wolfelele a lot more and enjoys learning it more because he had a hand in building his own functioning instrument.

Another great thing about the Wolfelele is that it can be customized and decorated or designed to suit the user. We’ve got plans for designing ours to be extra unique and truly one-of-a-kind, but just need to pick up some supplies. Customizing our instrument is going to be a lot of fun though…especially for our son! It’s another way to be creative and make this instrument your own.

We are really enjoying our Wolfelele. Dad plays it, the kids play it or are learning how to play it, and even I have been picking it up and taking some time to learn different chords, strumming, etc. It’s been a lot of fun to add a new (hand-crafted!) instrument to our home. If you’re looking for an affordable, fun and unique instrument to start learning this fall, the Wolfelele might just be the thing for you!
