CLASS: Intro to Mountain Dulcimer ONLINE MayMay 11 2022 05:30pm - 05:45pm America/Los_Angeles

Class

Mountain Dulcimer is one of the easiest and most fulfilling instruments to play: Once it's tuned, you can hardly make a mistake. While it sounds beautiful playing "high piney" tunes from the Appalachian Mountains, it also lends itself to more contemporary music like The Beatles and Leonard Cohen.

Every class, we’ll learn a couple of new tunes. Over the course of the six classes, you’ll learn two tunings, how to follow dulcimer tablature, chords, and strums to help you with your musical pursuits, and a couple of tunes per meeting. Once you've done that, you can join in on higher level classes Deborah offers.

NOTE: You will need a dulcimer for this class. If you are local, I have loaner dulcimers available for a $50 deposit. To purchase one yourself, I recommend looking for the following brands, new or used: New Harmony Dulcimer Co., Folkcraft, McSpadden, Blue Lion. Write me at deborahj@djhamouris.com for more info.
