Ukulele Song Circles

Monthly Ukulele Song Circle Meetings:

The Seattle Ukulele Players Association meets the second Sunday of he month, October through May at the Phinney Neighborhood Association. Doors open at 1:00. Song Circle from 1:30-3:30, and we must exit by 4:00pm.

Phinney Neighborhood Association Room 7 in the Blue Building (6532 Phinney Ave N, Seattle; 206-783-2244; Google Map). This is the Blue Building, and parking is available in a side lot, or the lower lot. Room 7 is on the 3rd floor, and there is an elevator.


We'll begin with a Song Circle Style where each person will have the chance to pick a song for the group, perform a song solo, or pass. The setting is very informal with no commitment required - just bring your ukulele (only, please!) and join us at our ukulele song circles.


We currently use two songbooks, the 2010 "green" book and the 2005-2007 "red" book. These books are available by electronic download, and you can request the link by attending a SUPA ukulele song circle meeting, only. We do not provide this link via email.

If you would like to introduce a new song to SUPA at a ukulele song circle, please contact us.

We now have a projector and screen for the songs, so all you really need is your ukulele!


The ukulele is a versatile instrument, and all types and styles of music are welcomed -- from American classics to Hawaiian hula to George Formby.


None required! All levels are welcomed, from beginners to professionals. If you don't know the chords...just sing louder! According to Jumpin' Jim Beloff, when a room full of 'ukulele players of all levels of experience join together to play a song, you can expect a combination of well-measured chords along with off-key hacks, perflectly tuned ukes along with poorly tuned instruments, and vintage Kamakas along with $20 eBay specials. Somehow, this collection of sounds will always result in beautiful music -- which is part of the magic of the 'ukulele.


$5 each session. This covers facilities rental. Cash is appreciated, but we do accept Venmo.


We have a small group of moderators and music leaders to kick off each song circle and are always looking for more. If interested, please contact one of the members at the ukulele song circle.


See you soon at the next Ukulele Song Circle!
