How long have you been playing ukulele?

Since March, 2006. I have played guitar since I was 11.

What level of player do you consider yourself?

I would consider myself a "seasoned" player, however I'm still learning all the time. There are plenty of players far more advanced than I am and I'm always eager to learn new things.

What kind of club activities would you like to participate in (e.g. jams, open mics, strum-alongs, etc.)

I enjoy intermediate to advanced level jams and round robins where people play songs they've been working on and who want feedback. Also I like jams, open mics for performance practice, and I'd like to know more about home recording. I like playing ukulele in ensembles along with musicians who play different instruments. I would enjoy forming a performing group of experienced ukulele players/singers who would want to develop our own arrangements and even original material. One other dream I have is to march as a big ukulele club in some of the local parades. SIG Chair for: Tin Pan Alley Jams, Parade Ensemble, Guest Performers

Are you interested in taking ukulele lessons?

I like learning from DVDs but I'm open to lessons too.


Hey, I'm Nina Coquina, founder of the Suncoast Sand Fleas. I'm excited about expanding our club to include different interest groups to attract all levels of uke players. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to host their own meetups!
