Dulcimer for Beginners
with Sue Small
The Mountain Dulcimer (also known as the Appaliachian or Lap Dulcimer) is easy to play! It only has 3-4 strings and you can play either chords or melodies. Come learn to play & sing folk songs, Celtic tunes, and hymns. Songs will be in DAA tuning. We will learn chords, strumming, and how to tune your instrument. Explore playing with noter and drones as well as how to make your own picks or play harmonies with one finger. Music, picks, and noters provided. Please bring a 3 or 4 string mountain dulcimer, music stand, and tuner. (Please note: class does not teach Hammered Dulcimer.) Instructor recommends cardboard "Simplicity Dulcimer" from backyardmusic.com or wooden instruments from Folkcraft.com or McSpaddendulcimers.com.
