    Default Aloha from Toronto, Ontario, Canada

    Hello Ukers!

    My name's Robbie and I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I recently began playing ukulele after purchasing my dream uke, a KoAloha Pikake Concert, from HMS back in October. (I named her Cleo, and have attached a picture to the post). I'm here to develop my playing, while also making connections in both the local and international ukulele community.

    Cheers,
    Robbie

    Hi Robulele, welcome to the Forum.

    Cleo is a lovely Ko'Aloha. You're starting with an excellent instrument. I'm sure you will enjoy the journey learning with her.

    Have fun!
    There is a subtle yet profound difference between the learning of something and the knowing of that thing.
    You can learn by reading, but you don't begin to know until you begin to try to do.

    Hi Robulele,
    Toronto has a wonderful Ukulele community. I don't believe the Corktown Ukulele Jam is still active, but it had a super open mic and many of the participants are still playing.
    Do you know Eve Goldberg? She's a great player, teacher and proponent of the ukulele in Toronto. Check her out on Facebook.
    Nice to see a fellow Canuck here.

    I don't believe the Corktown Ukulele Jam is happening anymore, though it could be on hiatus due to Covid. I know Hogtown Ukulele Club is in pandemic lockdown mode at the moment, along with the rest of Toronto. Good to know about Eve. I actually just began one-on-one classes with Jonah Davis. I plan on giving those a go, and move on from there. From everything I've seen, Toronto does have a great community of ukulele players.

    I'll also say a huge thank you to everyone else who responded to this thread. It's nice to receive such a warm welcome from everyone
