Thank you for visiting and enjoy the exhibit!

JMUke is a community­-based music group that engages people across the lifespan in participatory-based music-making, music learning, and community development. Since Spring 2017, JMUke has hosted countless “Strum and Sing” jam sessions and ukulele building activities all across the Eastern Seaboard. Various groups inspired by JMUke have begun to pop up in communities around universities such as Eastern Illinois University, Central Missouri State University, and Oregon State University. In this exhibit, you get a glimpse of the sights and sounds of JMUke jam sessions along with the physical artifacts including various iterations of a ukulele kit created through the group.
