ABOUT THE INSTRUCTORS:
Lisa Cohen has always known that music moves the deepest parts of her soul. A lifelong "casual" vocalist with experience performing with a variety of local musicians, more recently including The Shed Inspectors and The Splitting Headaches, Lisa explored piano and guitar before realizing the Ukelele as the best tool to support her ongoing personal musical journey. She was one of the original members of the Zukes Ukelele Orchestra, performing with the Wellington Ukelele Orchestra at the Zeiterion Theater in New Bedford in 2015, participates with the Massapoag Uke Strummers in Sharon, the Featherstone Uke Jam on Martha's Vineyard, and many porch and backyard jam sessions across New England. Lisa believes the ukulele is the perfect instrument for those that may have previously believed themselves to be "non-musical". She and Cindy Miller are founders and co-directors of the Unlikely Strummers, and together they have taught ukulele classes at the bookstore and for community education programs since 2017. Lisa is very excited to share the joy of ukulele with new strummers at An Unlikely Story.
Cindy Miller has had a lifelong relationship with music. After many years of formal training on flute, guitar, and piano, the ukulele is her most recent instrumental adventure. She is a member of the Zukes Ukulele Orchestra, based at the Zeiterion Theater in New Bedford, and has also played with The Mighty Uketones and the Massapoag Strummers. Cindy has performed at the Cape Cod Ukulele Festival, the Wamsutta Club's "Not Your Average Christmas," New Bedford's "AHA!" (Art, History, Architecture) Nights, the New Bedford Portuguese Festival, the welcoming ceremony for the crew of the Hawaiian voyaging canoe Holukea, Brockton's Fuller Craft Museum, and also as game-day entertainment for the Brockton Rox baseball team, as well as at coffeehouses, open mic nights, and community events in the area. She and Lisa Cohen are founders and co-directors of the Unlikely Strummers, and together they have taught ukulele classes at the bookstore and for community education programs since 2017. Cindy looks forward to spreading "ukulele love" through our classes!
