Ukulele in Community

A large crowd strums their ukuleles at Central Library

Find community through music!

Cell phones aren't the only small devices connecting people these days. Ukuleles are transcending borders, genres, and generations. Madison's thriving ukulele culture includes a 1200-member club called Madison Area Ukulele Initiative (MAUI). MAUI members will be available to help beginners learn to play in a free, 2-hour workshop and sing-along. Bring a ukulele or try one of 50 instruments available at the event.

Ukulele in Community
Saturday, Nov. 16, 2:00-4:00pm
Central Library (3rd Floor)
Free to attend but space is limited. Register to reserve your spot!

Both workshop and sing-along will be facilitated by MAUI Director and veteran teacher Andrew Wilke. Workshop info will be projected on a large video screen in one of the spacious, 3rd-floor, Central Library community rooms. You'll learn how to strum and play simple chords in a relaxed, fun learning environment, with plenty of time to engage MAUI members with your questions. Then we'll sing and strum easy songs together in community. You'll leave feeling happier and more connected to the people and world around you.
