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. 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 (gu
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.
Bring your ukulele and join us for a safe and fun outdoor meetup and jam session. This will be our last in-person meetup for awhile as the cold weather months are approaching. Wear a fleece or your favorite fall sweater, bring your ukulele and join in the fun at the Woodbury Senior Community Center Parking Lot!
We'll be learning and playing two songs...The Lion Sleeps Tonight, and in honor of Halloween, Spooky. Both use basic chords and offer some fun strumming patterns, You'll find them 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. Due to Covid-19 restrictions it will actually be an "open mic-less" moment!
Bring a chair, a mask, and come enjoy the simple pleasures of seeing friends, playing music, and enjoying our beautiful New England fall weekend weather. Speaking of weather, inclement weather cancels this event...for up to date information, follow our Facebook page ( see link, below)
