Would love tips on how to move from beginner to intermediate. And would like to attend a social distance jam session in my area (Port St. Lucie, Florida)

New to playing the uke. Got my 1st on March 23rd, and, thanks to youtube, have been practicing an hour or more a day ever since. My husband says I'm obsessed. I bought 5 more! Different sizes, different woods, different tones. It's wonderful!

Check out the Player Directory in the menu for folks in you area that you can connect with for local info. As to transitioning from beginner to intermediate it's the old joke, practice, practice, practice. Playing with other people (at a socially responsible distance for now) is also one of the best ways to improve your playing. Welcome, and good luck to you!

Lessons wouldn't hurt. My pal Phil Doleman offers one on one skype lessons. See https://www.phildoleman.co.uk/

That's awesome Michelle!
I would also recommend to practice playing with out the song's sheet music. Music sheets, chord's and lyrics are great to lean a song. My method of practice is to play as far as I can without looking. If I get stuck I refer to the notes and start by memory all the way to the beginning. By the time you make it from stop to finish you have now memorized the song.
This help allow you to connect with an audience and other musicians while playing.

Welcome and Good Luck
