I have a 2 year old daughter who seems to be extremely musically inclined. She sings, dances, and begs for us to turn on the radio whenever there is one within earshot. Naturally I'd like to foster this interest but I'm not sure the best route to take.
I was thinking about finding her an inexpensive uke (something laminate and durable) but something that would also allow her to eventually learn how to play beyond just strumming open strings. Not to mention buying her one gives daddy the chance to learn along with her/teach her. (I'm not currently a uke player but I've always wanted to learn.)
So my questions are two-fold:
1: Is this a wise purchase for a 2 year old who has musical interest and the capability to be relativity gentle with fragile items when told to do so?
2: What beginner uke would be high quality enough to allow learning on but also durable enough withstand a drop or two on the carpet?
I'd appreciate any help or advice you guys an offer.
