The NYC Uke Squad is Spreading Ukulele Love!

Note: See important Updates at the bottom of this page! 

Ukulele teacher and YouTube sensation Cynthia Lin and I created The NYC Uke Squad in the fall of 2017, hoping to create a way for Cynthia's local students and any other nearby ukulele players to play together in person and build community. Our intent was to bring Cynthia's then San-Francisco based "Aloha spirit" and uke-love to the NYC area. A wonderful group has grown out of this idea!

We try to jam at least twice a month, in various New York City neighborhoods and venues. All levels are welcome. When beginners are present, the first 30-40 minutes can be devoted to beginner-friendly songs.

The NYC Squad plays many of Cynthia's arrangements, but we don't limit ourselves to any particular source or genre. Attend a jam and teach us your favorite song!
