Cigar Box  Ukuleles and Amps

Build a concert scale ukulele,  make an amplifier for it, learn to play it, write some songs, leave camp a musician.

Gadget Lab is thrilled to have acclaimed author, songwriter and expert Uke player Mary Amato  as a guest instructor for this awesome Ukulele making camp.

The Ukes are beautiful,  easy to play and make a great first stringed instrument. Mary and I will help the kids make their instruments while they learn to play and even write their own songs.

And that's not all.  The kids will also make a beautiful cigar box amplifier that they can use with their electric ukuleles or any electric uke or guitar.
