Second Friday of Every Month | 6pm

Welcoming beginning and intermediate students passionate about tablature. All songs done in tablature and will learn how to keep time with others. The goal is for students to perform to the best of their ability and with passion. Students will perform at the Downtown Tuesday event on Vernon Street, and at the renowned Auburn Ukulele Festival. We will meet at the Strum Shop once a month on the third Friday of the month, from 6-7 pm. Students will be expected to practice, and if possible, will send me a weekly recording of their progress. If students are struggling, I will make time available to schedule private lessons. This orchestra is based upon a previous ukulele orchestra conducted by Dani Joy. After eight months of her mentorship, I have decided to start my own orchestra for those who share my passion for tablature.
