Music has been dubbed “The soundtrack of our lives,” and for good reason. Nothing seems to identify a particular age group more than its music. While we may enjoy the music of our children’s era or our parents’ era, it is the music of our own era that speaks to our age group as a shared experience - almost a shared language. More than anything for me, personally, is the music that was popular during my high school days, be it doo-wop, rock and roll, ballads, or whatever I was hearing.

It has also been written that each of us, unique or different or freaky as we may be, should continue to sing our own song until that special someone comes along who recognizes our song and can sing it with us. You and your soulmate may share a song that no one else can hear. “Music is what feelings sound like.”

Yes, music is the soundtrack of our lives, and this website is dedicated to enriching the life of each visitor through their connection to music.

  In Brief:

Bluegrass is a collection of over 120 chorded songs at present, from the bluegrass, gospel and country genres. 

Evergreen refers to the Evergreen Community Center, where a combination of Villagers and non-Villagers gathers to learn, rehearse and perform songs relating to various times of the year, such as Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Cinco de Mayo, Christmas, and so forth. Some songs are taken from popular musicals, as well. These are all lyrics-only songs.

Folksters is a collection of some 52 folk songs at present in both chorded and lyrics-only formats.

John’s Jams is an eclectic selection of 40 or so fun songs, many of which were also chosen as “advanced ukulele” songs. All are chorded.

Magic Moments is a collection of some 55 or more “pop songs” of the 1950s and 60s. They are all chorded songs.

Saturday Morning is a collection of some 88 songs at present, chosen for their familiarity and sing-along qualities. There are both chorded and lyrics-only sets of songs.

Ukulele Club includes both a numbered and alphabetized set of 151 songs at present. All are chorded. The collection includes holiday favorites and songs from the Hawaiian tradition, as well as many sing-along and popular favorites.

World of Music represents an extensive and growing collection of chorded and lyrics-only songs ranging from country and rock and roll, to “pop music” and the standards. These are generally songs that have not been introduced to any of the other collections, or that have been deleted or declined by the other collections. The quality of the copies varies, but all are deemed useful.
