FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

When and where do you meet?
We meet on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month from 7:00 PM until 9:00 PM at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art, 1010 Broad Street. (If our meeting night falls on a Monday holiday we may meet the next evening, Tuesday.) In the menu above, check "Next Meeting" for the upcoming date.

Are guests welcome?
Yes! We welcome new prospective members as well as strummers passing through the area. 


Is there a fee to join?
There's no membership fee, but we do ask for a $5 donation each meeting to cover the cost of miscellaneous expenses we incur throughout the year. 

Do I need to purchase music?
No. We have a great, friendly group and our members are happy to share music with you until you decide to join. Our music library is on-line for our members to view, print or download the next meeting's music for free. Some prefer to use a tablet device, while others prefer to print the music and keep it in a three-ring binder. For more information, contact our UkuLibrarian, Bonnie McElwain, at slostrummers@gmail.com.


What kind of music do you play?

We enjoy learning various genres of music, both songs and instrumental ensembles. We perform from time to time.

I'm a beginner. Is this the right group for me?
While we have several members who started as beginners, you'll probably enjoy yourself more if you have a little experience under your belt. It would be helpful if you knew a few basic chords and strumming patterns. There are several local groups that are great for beginners. One is the Baywood Ukulele Social Club. In addition to a group sing- and strum-along, they give lessons in the hour before the general group meets. Of course, you're always welcome to come to SLO Strummers and just observe.
