Ukulele Friends is all about having fun while learning the ukulele and improving our playing skills. We welcome all skill levels from beginning to advanced and love sharing what we know about this fun little instrument. Playing the ukulele can relieve stress and bring communities together. It's also a past time that is wholesome and appropriate for any age.
• What we'll do
Aloha Ukulele Friends ....

After we play these songs, we'll take a break and enjoy some refreshments, then after the break everyone will have a chance to pick their favorite song out of our list and we'll all play along. If you wish, bring a treat to share with group. (Finger food, cookies, fruit, etc.).
If possible, please print out the songs and bring them with you to the meetup. If you aren't able to print the songs, no problem, we'll sit you down next to a friendly person with the music on an Ipad to share. If you have a music stand please bring it along, if not, no problem, the studio has a few that are available to borrow. Also, We recently have come into possession of two older Ipad2s that are loaded with all our music that we use a loaners for new members and guests.
As always, if you have any questions about the group, or ukulele in general feel free to ask by using the message feature here on Meetups.
