The 1 hour ukulele workshop that follows makes for a perfect beginning to a great week ahead. Lots of learning and a bit of YUGA have created a wonderful backdrop to a growing group of regular participants. Drop in when you can: every session stands alone. Easy to intermediate, but not for absolute beginners.
It's for leaders of ukulele clubs, groups, ensembles and jams, and for those thinking about starting something up. It's about how to up the ante: how to get the most out of your time, energy and resources, how to lead, teach, manage, promote and how to produce the best possible experience for your members.

Our position in Toronto's sizeable ukulele scene gives us comprehensive, highly efficient reach as concert promoters and promotional partners. We have presented some of the contemporary uke scene's biggest names to capacity audiences: Manitoba Hal (x6), and Lionel Hubert, Jim & Liz Beloff, Jim D'Ville and Ralph Shaw - each for the first time ever in Toronto. In October 2012, we co-presented the Jake Shimabukuro documentary Life on Four Strings at Toronto's Reel Asian International Film Festival, and partnered in presenting Jake Shimabukuro in concert on two occasions, each to full-house audiences at the Flato Markham Theatre. (April, 2013 and March 4, 2015).
June 16, 2010 - In Toronto for Moses Znaimer's IDEA CITY conference, Jake Shimabukuro dropped by the Corktown Ukulele Jam for 2.5 hours of spontaneous performance and dialogue. For many of us, Jake's impromptu visit has become a list topper of life profound experiences. There are several video captures of the occasion on our YouTube channel.
