Irish Slow Learning Circle

A learning circle (or Ceoltais) is a traditional style of learning tunes. It offers the new person to Irish music the chance to hear tunes played in the style, learn them without concern about making mistakes, and develop his or her ear. In a Ceoltais, unlike a regular session, all players are encouraged to play every tune no matter the tempo, feel free to make mistakes, ask questions, and experiment at trying to find the pitches and rhythms.

About Us

The Strum Shop is a family owned musical instrument store which was opened by Daniel Elliott and Stu Herreid in May of 2012 when they both noticed a need for support of the rapidly growing ukulele community in the greater Sacramento area.

The Strum Shop is known for our many music workshops and concerts held all throughout the year. We offer private music lessons every day of the week and group lessons on various days throughout the week. We also offer instrument rentals and in-house repairs of fretted instruments as well as school band and orchestra instruments.

The Strum Shop was selected as a Top 100 Dealer by the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM), the global association of music products and music retailers in 2016.
