Celebrate National Make Music Day at Middle C Music

Free Ukulele Circle on June 21st!

We will be hosting a free ukulele circle at the store as a part of NAMM's promotion of Make Music Day! Players of all ages and skill levels are welcome. Participants can either bring their own uke, or borrow one from the store. The first half-hour will be spent going over ukulele basics and beginning chords, then the rest of the time will be spent playing as many songs together as we can!

Certainly We Have Ukuleles!

Certainly We Have Ukuleles!

Summer is here, the weather is warm, the beach is beckoning… If you've ever been tempted to pick up a ukulele, now's the time. This versatile and portable little instrument has been enjoying a surge in popularity ever since Israel "Iz" Kamakawiwoʻole strummed his iconic rendition of "Over the Rainbow" in the early nineties. Other artists and stars such as Jason Mraz, Zooey Deschanel, and Jake Shimabukuro have recently added fuel to the ukulele fire.

Whether you're a beginner, intermediate, or advanced player, and whether you want to play jazz, folk, pop, or rock, we've got uke-covered.
