I enjoy the "Jams" because they reintroduce me to songs long forgotten as well as songs I've never heard before. It also helps keep my fingers calloused by the continued weekly playing. - Brent
It’s been great during the pandemic to still be able to get together [via Zoom] playing music with a group of nice, fun people! I like all the variety of music too. - Linda B.
I like TCUC because - I like "British Invasion" and a variety of songs (Bluegrass, rock'n roll, country, folk, etc.). And, I like the Zoom jam because I get to see people from outside the Twin Cities area. Thanks. - Shig
The jam sessions are a remarkably fun way to sustain interest in the uke. They are a uke strummin’, song singing, toe-tappin’ good time. – Joe
I love the Friday jams and learn something every single time! - Karen
I just want to say thank you to our jam leader and this entire group, for giving me a place to play with others. There are music teachers, music majors, and professional singers that welcome all at these jams. I played guitar and performed in college, a long, long time ago. I play by ear, don’t read music, and you all make me feel welcome and teach me along the way. Cheers to a great group! - Colleen
I enjoy coming to [the Twin Cities Ukulele Club] sessions because there is no criticism, no pressure, and nothing but fun. Everyone is made to feel welcome no matter how little experience they have. All participants are willing to help. I feel like I am walking on sunshine by the time I leave. - Roseann
Nice people; fun to play with others; chance to work on chords and get better; always makes me smile to play! - Linda
Our leader, is so welcoming!! I felt comfortable from my first jam. He is patient and gives me space to goof up and learn in a fun and receptive space. He lays out basic things, like tuning, strumming and new strings in a plane, uncomplicated way, and encourages us all to sing. I am also learning how to teach from him, maybe I could lead ukulele in another setting. The guys who work at Groth are great too, allowing me to get familiar with upgrades on my uke. I am so thankful!! - Collette
There's nothing much better than getting together with a bunch of people solely to make music and having a good time doing it. - Tom
