Friday Morning Jams are cancelled until further notice.

IMPORTANT COVID-19 Information for Twin Cities Ukulele Club
The Twin Cities Ukulele Club has decided to cancel Friday Morning Jams at Groth Music for the foreseeable future.   This decision was made after careful consideration of CDC guidelines.  Due to the large turnout of participants, it would be very difficult to maintain an environment that helps to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  Groth Music encourages everyone to follow CDC guidelines.  

Friday Morning Jam at Groth Music (Canceled for the Foreseeable Future) 

Picture
 
What is a Jam? - Jam sessions are often used by musicians as a social gathering and communal practice session. Jam sessions may be based upon existing songs, and jams are often loose gatherings of amateurs who get together to play music.  Jams are fun times to play music with others.

The Friday Morning Jams at Groth Music - These are jams, not lessons.  However, the uke is so easy to play that even if you have never played before, we’ll show you simple chords to get you playing along right away.  

Need help playing the uke?  Twin Cities Ukulele Club Friday Morning jams will start with a 10:30 a.m. half hour basic workshop.  This is for those who are new uke players or who haven’t played uke much or recently. The whole idea is to introduce and practice chords, chord changes, 1 4 5, and other concepts to new or less experienced uke players before the jam.  Then, we will start playing songs right at 11.

Music in this jam is from the traditions that make up the American musical ethos; specifically those sounds that are come from tin pan alley, folk, cowboy, country and blues.  We will use The Daily Ukulele: 365 Songs For Better Living "Yellow Book" as our primary source of songs.  This book is available at Groth Music.  

When - Beginning February 12, 20162nd and 4th Fridays each month from 11 am to 1 pm

Who - The jam emphasis will be on ukulele.  This jam is geared for beginners to advanced uke players, with an emphasis an keeping things simple so all can participate right from the beginning.  This Friday Morning jam is open to the public.

What - A moderate paced Ukulele Jam.  The jam focus will be on helping all jammers feel welcome and part of the jam - from the beginning.

Where - Groth Music – 8056 Nicollet Ave S, Bloomington, MN 55420.

Questions - Automatic Notification of Events - You may ask questions and sign up for automatic e-mail notification of the Twin Cities Ukulele Club jams by contacting TwinCities[email protected].
