Want to know how to tune a Ukulele? Watch our handy online Ukulele Tuner video guide.
Here's a great little online ukulele tuner courtesy of Sam from PMTVUK. In this video, Sam helps you make sure your new Uke is tuned to the right notes! There's few things worse than playing an out-of-tune ukulele... it's such an easy instrument to play, but if it's out of tune you'll think it's the hardest!
This tuner is for the standard G-C-E-A ukulele tuning. Click on the note for the string you want to tune and then turn the tuning knobs on your ukulele to match it up or down with the note that is being played. If you have a Banjo Ukulele, then the tunings are still the same, so this will work.
*For those of you who are beginners or are used to guitar tuning, to save confusion it would be worth mentioning to you that the top string (G) is supposed to be higher in pitch than the C and E below it.

Now, let's learn how to tune a Ukulele with our online Ukulele Tuner video, below.
However, any Uke player is advised to have their own tuner, for extra convenience. You might not always have access to the internet or an online ukulele tuner, so it makes sense to have a spare battery powered ukulele tuner in your case or backpack. Fortunately they don't cost the earth!
