Fun with four strings and friends
Woodbury Senior Center wanted to start a fun intergenerational project - and ukuleles are just plain fun! You're invited- whether you know music or not, whether you have experience or not - just bring a willingness to have fun and a good sense of humor. Our youngest registered player is 7; our oldest is 80+. Come join us!
Music should be fun. So should community life. We're doing both.
WUB's loaner ukuleles were purchased through a mini-grant from the Woodbury Bethlehem Community Music Foundation. Borrow one today at the Woodbury Public Library using your library card.
Bring a ukulele to a meet up! At each session we'll have 30 minutes or so of tuning and basic instruction, followed by a learning and playing jam session.

Bring a ukulele to a meet up! At each session we'll have 30 minutes or so of tuning and basic instruction, followed by a learning and playing jam session. You don't need to read music to play the ukulele; interested people of all ages and all experience levels are welcome. We also welcome you if you play a complementary instrument (guitar, bass, mandolin, accordian, etc.) and you can follow the chord charts.
Cooler weather and a pandemic means WUB is moving back online for the next few months. The bad news is COVID restrictions will prevent us from gathering in person. The good news is we'll be warm indoors, and you can sing as loudly as you want! Join us from your computer, tablet or smart phone. Zoom links will be sent out via email, so be sure to contact Loryn at (203) 263-2828 to get on the email list.
In the spirit of the holiday season, we'll be featuring two songs: a great medley arrangement of "Mele Kalikimala" and perennial favorite "Silver Bells." You'll find songsheets for both under the SONGS tab at the top of this page. As usual, we will have an "open mic" moment in the middle of the jam for anyone who wants to share a solo.
Come enjoy the simple pleasures of seeing friends, playing music, and enjoying camaraderie as we play our ukes on Zoom. No ukulele? We have several of our ukuleles at the Woodbury Public Library where you are welcome to check them out with a valid library card. Beginners and people of all ages are welcome.
