- Soprano – this is the smallest size ukulele and is a great starting ukulele size for kids. The Makala Dolphin ukulele I recommend for kids are this size.
- Concert – this is the next biggest sized ukulele, and the size I prefer to play myself because it offers a bit more space on the fretboard for bigger fingers.
- Tenor – this is a great size for finger picking, and usually has a deeper sound than the soprano and concert ukuleles.
- Baritone – the biggest of the lot, and not one I’d buy until your competent playing either of the above sized ukuleles.
