Frequently Asked Questions

How do I become a member?
Just show up at one of our monthly meetings! There is no fee to participate. All are welcome to join – from beginners to experienced players. Fill out this short form if you would like to be added to our mailing list. We’ll keep you up-to-date on our meetings and other ukulele-related activities around Austin. Exactly one week before we meet in person, we share the song sheet for the new-to-us song of the month, via our email list.

When do you meet?
We meet on the second Thursday of each month, 7:00 to 9:00pm. (From time to time we meet on a different day of the month, so please do check this website to be sure.) During our meetings we have group sing-and-strum-a-longs and educational sessions; we learn a new song at every meeting. We also set aside time for a brief “open mic” for individuals to get up and share a solo tune (purely voluntary!).

Where do you hold your meetings?

Our meetings take place at the Memorial United Methodist Church located at 6100 Berkman Drive, Austin, TX 78723. We meet in the gym. Map it!

For anyone who might be attending for the first time, the church is pretty easy to find – but it is big. You’ll enter from Berkman Dr. using a ‘one way’ entrance and you can park alongside or behind the church. Past the canopied main church entrance, on the same side of the building, there is another entrance on the right. Walk in there and you’ll be in the gym. From there simply follow the sounds of ukuleles tuning up. 🙂

Where can I purchase a ukulele in Austin?
There are several local music stores that carry ukuleles, including:

I love those fabulous Austin Ukulele Society t-shirts. How can I buy one?
Austin Ukulele Society t-shirts can be purchased at our monthly meetings on the second Thursday of each month. To make sure we have a particular size and style available at a meeting, we recommend contacting us in advance.

To place an online order, contact us, tell us which shirts you’re interested in, and we’ll discuss payment options with you.
