Want to Learn to Play the Ukulele?

If so, the Cheez Land Uke Band is for you. We're glad you found us. We are a group of people with a passion for playing and learning to play the ukulele. We meet each week to play, sing and help each other improve and we are led by our Musical Director, Cheri Schuyler.   Some of the more experienced players even perform for others.  Come early at 6:00 pm on Wednesdays each week for a special beginners' session.

Did you know...that the sale of ukuleles is growing faster than any other musical instrument in the industry? It's true. In fact, it's been true for the last ten years. Why? It's fun. It's easy to learn. It's easy to play. It's small. It's portable. It's inexpensive. It's social. It makes people smile. It's used to play ALL kinds of music. Are you ready to get started? Let's go!

Where Do We Meet?

The Cheezland Uke Band meets every Wednesday from 6:30 to 8:00 pm at the Moose Lodge, 1932 Ward Ave., La Crosse. Wisconsin (see map). Please consider supporting the Moose by purchasing drinks and food. Or go all in and purchase a membership!
Covid-19 is still a concern in public places.   So consider a mask for the safety of all of us. The Board will continue to monitor community spread and reassess the situation.

Is There a Cost?

Yes, but it's minimal. The first night is FREE for beginners with a free beginner instruction handbook.  A printed copy of the regular songbook is $5.00  
We ask all adult players to donate $3 and $1 per child at each meeting.  All funds go towards running and maintaining the club..  

    Questions? We'd Be Happy to Help!

Do I Need a Uke to Begin?

 No. Not to attend your first meeting. There are a limited number of "loaner" ukuleles available for you to use if you do not own one. If you enjoy your experience and want to attend more, you'll want to buy a ukulele. 

Send an email message to cheezland.info@gmail.com if you plan to attend a meeting but do not have a uke. We'll make sure there is an extra uke at the meeting for you to use.

Ukuleles come in 4 sizes. From smallest to largest the sizes are called soprano, concert, tenor and Baritone. Before you buy a ukulele, try out a couple of different sizes at our meetings. We'll help you decide which size fits you best. This is especially important if you've never played or purchased a musical instrument in the past.
