Introduction to Mountain Dulcimer
Mountain Dulcimer is one of the easiest & most fulfilling instruments to play. Once it's tuned you can hardly make a mistake.

In this introductory workshop you learn how to play a few simple tunes in DAD tuning. You'll also learn the fretboard, some scales, chords, strums, and how to follow dulcimer tablature.

NOTE: You will need a dulcimer for this class. If you need to borrow one, I have 3 loaners which must be reserved prior to the first class. To purchase one yourself, I recommend looking for the following brands, new or used: Sweetwwods, Folkcraft, Folk Roots, Capritaurus, McSpadden, Blue Lion. Sweetwoods offers a student model for $125.00, new, which you can trade in on another model. Write me at deborahj@djhamouris.com for more info on this important choice.
