Ukulele Season Story

I let my 'true colours show' musically in July 2014, while I entered pre-retirement and grieved the death of my younger sister. I loved music having grown up in a family that sang on road trips and around campfires. I have a wee background in music; high school choir, flute and later piano lessons as young adult. However, I was intimidated by string instruments, even ones with four strings!

Then my good friend Nikki visited with her ukulele! I met a new friend who learned saxophone at age 68 and that was that! I dusted off a ukulele songbook our son created for me, bought my first real ukulele - a Kala Tenor.

After retiring, and a season of learning ukulele online, I began lessons with a human local professional teacher John M. I began to seek out locals to connect with over a mutual love of learning the ukulele. After waiting for someone else to create a group that meets locally during daylight hours, I started to promote the idea with support and encouragement of my dear friend Patsy.

Since the creation of local gatherings in September of 2016, I continued to meet up with fun-loving players. I decided to make our own songbooks so we could all sing and play from the same page… same key, same lyrics. I hope this little story of Ukulele Season inspires you to pick up a ukulele, sing out loud and find others to share in your joy of making music with others.
