Every month a new song & technique are introduced and broken down into understandable sections. Students who wish to be challenged are encouraged to use new chord shapes, etc, while the novice players focus on the basic material. This allows students of all levels to play and learn together, as well as on their own.
Bring your banjolele, music and a music stand (if you have one). We'll do a round robin: You pick the song - you lead the song (if you are comfortable with that). If you have music to share with the group please bring about 20 copies. This is a good-time, low stress, fun gig just to get together and play some music ton the banjo ukulele.
Always the first Friday of every month at 7pm & again the following Saturday at 10:30am: We dedicate the first 20 minutes to a beginner lesson (basic chords, etc.) Then we play (or strum-a-long) to songs which we project on to a big screen for all to see. Beginners to advanced player are all welcome.
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.
