Prescott Ukulele Group (PUG) started out with five members in 2011 under the direction of former Yavapai College music director Will Fisher. They played at the annual Prescott tradition, Acker Musical Showcase, that year, which generated a list of interested players that quickly grew to about 30 members by its second year and which continues to grow.
Sub-groups perform regularly for assisted living and retirement center residents, elementary schools, breweries, garden clubs, and various organizations at their breakfast, lunch and dinner meetings. Click the event page for details on PUG events.
Classes: We have one member who created an after-school ukulele program for elementary students in Chino Valley. [on hiatus in fall 2023]
PUG beginner classes and workshops are posted on Events Page
Currently, PUG meets at Prescott Library, at 6:15 p.m. on the first Thursday of the month; doors open at 6pm. It helps to know a few basic chords, but beginners are welcome to join in the practice as they can. You can read about Ukulele Lessons here.
Member Fees are $24 per year and if joining in the second half year, fee is $15. Fees are for Scholarships, Classes, Annual Picnic, Ukuleles for Library and Expenses etc…
