It is not necessary to have a knowledge of music, nor do you need to own a ukulele, although many people have one as a souvenir of a visit to Hawaii. Local music stores rent ukuleles for a modest price and the purchase price is also reasonable.
The UOK group has many members who have a very good knowledge of music and some play more than one instrument. We also have some who are absolute beginners so if this sounds like you, have no fear, we have a few volunteer mentors who will help you get started. If you would like to learn to play the ukulele, please check out the Gemstone Jammers (under Programs and Classes). We endeavor to increase our knowledge and ability with the ukulele by hosting workshops and bringing in instructors with a wide variety of experience.
The Ukulele Orchestra of Kamloops enjoys sharing their music with others and are very active in the community. There is no obligation to perform, but once you see how much the audience enjoys the music it makes it easy to do so.
