Hi Virginia, there is a jam in Durham and a new jam in North Raleigh, please look at those listings, you can come and learn/practice at either jam, beginners are most most welcome at either jam. I can also recommend a ukulele teacher.
The former name of this group was the "Uke Jam at High Strung Violins and Guitars," but on October 1, 2013, it was changed to "Triangle Uke Jams and Events," to reflect the broader purpose of the Meetup group, which is to promote ukulele related jams and events in the Triangle area.
Note that this Meetup group will still list meetings of the Uke Jam associated with High Strung Violins and Guitars in Durham, but it will also list other, related events.
If you have a ukulele-related event that you would like to include, please notify the organizer to get it listed in this group. You may also wish to look into the Chapel Hill UUkes group, which has its own Meetup group.
