Woody Clark from Woody’s World has toured the country with his kids, and he’s passionate about teaching kids music. He’s about to launch an online program teaching kids and their adults ukulele. So just how do you go from a folk musician to turning your family into a modern day travelling band? The answer is just as funny as you'd think.

Plus he reveals the secret to getting your kid to play an instrument that is as cheap as a recorder and nowhere near as mind bendingly tortuous.

 Check out Woody’s website for more details on his online ukulele courses and upcoming children's album.
