Workshops return in November: Vote for your “Best Hits”

Ad for survey of workshops in November

As I prepare to return to teaching, what better way to get back into the swing of things than with some of our “best hits”?! We’ve learned a LOT of music these past several years as we’ve tackled a different genre of music each term. Let’s revisit our favorites! What are you excited to play? Vote for your favorites from the following:

  • 70s/80s pop
  • The Beatles
  • Classic Country
  • Motown
  • Music from the Movies
  • On the Road Again (Traveling Songs)
  • 60s Folk Revival

Be sure to fill out this survey to let me know what music you’d like to revisit, or learn for the first time.  You do not need to have learned the music the first time around, I’ll have packets aplenty.

Finally, all workshops will take place at our SE Portland location: Lincoln St Methodist Church, 5145 SE Lincoln St. Save these dates for these workshops, *times subject to change*:

  • Sunday, November 4, 1:00-3:00pm
  • Saturday, November 10, 1:00-3:00pm
  • Saturday, November 17, 10:00am-Noon

Check back soon to learn what the winners are and how to register!


Summer Mixed-Level Ukulele Jam

A group of women and men hold ukuleles and smile.


Saturday, July 28, 2018


Artichoke Music – 2007 SE Powell Blvd., Portland, OR

What we’ll do

Mixed-Level Ukulele Jam

Music will be provided, just bring your ukulele and your singing voice! Each participant will have a chance to choose a song from our songbook for the group to play and sing together. Make new friends, deepen your musicianship, and bring some joy into your Saturday!

Baby Shower

This is the last jam Avery will lead before going on maternity leave, so it will be a special celebration for her. Gifts are absolutely not expected, but if you feel so inspired, she invites you to bring your favorite children’s book to build her baby’s library and/or consider signing up to provide a meal for the family after the baby is born. Definitely plan to stick around for some tea time refreshments after the jam.

What to bring

Ukulele (or let us know if you need to borrow one!)

Important to know

This event is free and open to all, but a $5-10 donation is gratefully accepted to cover venue and admin costs.
