2020.4 MarcyMarxer FBLive.pngJoin our Ukulele instructor Marcy Marxer on Friday, April 24, from 4-5 PM Eastern Time for Marcy’s Facebook Live workshop, where she will be answering questions from students in her Peghead Nation course and other ukulele players, talking about playing the uke, and playing a few tunes.

If you have something you'd like Marcy to address during this Facebook Live event, just email your questions to her at instructors(at) (include the subject “Question for Marcy’s Facebook Live Event”). While she may not get to all the questions during the event, she will definitely consider everything that gets submitted.

Please join us next Friday for a fun hour, and be sure to follow Peghead Nation on Facebook for event updates. 

We will also have a virtual tip jar for Marcy, and you can contribute to that at any time! 

Take a listen to Marcy playing a beautiful fingerstyle ukulele arrangement of the jazz standard “Autumn Leaves” on Peghead Nation.  


Marcy Marxer is a multi-instrumentalist, studio musician, performer, songwriter, and producer with 30 years of experience and a shelf of impressive awards.

She has played acoustic music on Emmy Award-winning National Geographic specials, platinum-shipping Eva Cassidy CDs, and more than 50 recordings and instructional materials created with her partner, Cathy Fink. Marcy’s guitar playing spans a variety of styles—swing rhythm and lead, bluegrass, old-time, Celtic and folk fingerpicking, and some of the most tasteful backup you’ll ever hear. The C.F. Martin Co. has honored Marcy with her very own signature model guitar, the MC3H which she helped design. She also plays mandolin, bouzouki, hammered dulcimer, Latin percussion, banjos, pennywhistle and flutes and, of course, the beloved ukulele.

The fun-loving Marcy is all about connecting music and people. In addition to teaching locally when not on tour, she has created a super-fun international online network for lovers of the mighty ukulele, Ukulele Social Club and has built a large following at top music camps such as Steve Kaufman’s Acoustic Kamp, Mars Hill, Woods Camp, and others.
