Schools ditching recorders for ukuleles

More and more schools are choosing to teach the ukulele over instruments like the recorder.

A ukulele is a small guitar with four strings and comes from Hawaii.

Ricky's been to visit a school in Cheltenham where they've ditched recorders for ukuleles.

Teachers says it's cheaper than a recorder and produces a better sound.

See what you think when Ricky has a go at playing one!
