-USUALLY HELD ON SATURDAY, TWO WEEKS BEFORE THE LAST SATURDAY OF THE MONTH, THIS WILL BE A CASUAL, FUN GET TOGETHER, AIMED AT IMPROVING ONE'S "UKING," WHILE HAVING FUN, STRUMMIN' AND SINGIN'. The list of songs we will work from is HERE. Please download the songs (from the main songlist) and bring them with you. We meet at Brookdale Mountain Laurel, 1177 Hebron Ave., Glastonbury. Beginners 9:45-11am (this is now the only opportunity, besides my Adult Ed course, to learn from scratch-no more beginners' session the morning of the BIG SING). 11-1pm for the regular mid-month session.

Purpose: For ukulele enthusiasts of all ages and abilities to meet regularly to play songs, share techniques, and, hopefully, learn a thing or two.

Who: Anyone who plays the ukulele, or wants to learn to play. We invite frustrated or "lapsed" guitarists of any ability to see how easy it is to play your favorite songs on the ukulele. For those without instruments, ukuleles will be available for “testing the waters” at meetings.

When: Usually two meetings each month. The next meetings will be:

  • MID-MONTH MEETING- The next MMM will be Saturday, May 14th. Beginners from 9:45am to 11:00am. Regular meeting from 11am to 1pm. HERE are the songs we'll play.

  • MID-MONTH-Brookdale Mountain Laurel, 1177 Hebron Avenue, Glastonbury
