Beginning Mountain Dulcimer

Beginning Mountain Dulcimer with Anne Lough

Got a dulcimer hanging on the wall? Time to take it down and try your hand learning basic melody and strumming techniques by ear or a simple tablature system. No musical experience is necessary to enjoy playing this beautiful, soothing, Appalachian instrument. You'll finish the week with the skills necessary to continue playing and enjoying the music on your own.

This class is presented in collaboration with John C. Campbell Folk School and Lessonface. Class capacity is 24 students. Registration closes on January 15, 2024. Students are invited to attend a large group Orientation and Closing Ceremony to connect with various classes online.

It was excellent! I learned what I had hoped to learn: some new arranging ideas, and a few new songs that I like very much.

Excellent. Inspiring. Opportunities for questions and related discussion. Instructor made class members feel at ease and open to asking questions without feeling as though should already know the information, etc. Would recommend this instructor for anyone wanting to explore or advance their skills re: hammered dulcimer.

Class was quite good.

Fantastic. Anne is just about the nicest person imaginable and such an amazing teacher. It was really interesting to hear about the history of the dulcimer and the local area too. She really brought it to life. The lessons were pitched exactly right and I felt like she really cared about everyone and was so encouraging. I felt like the class was an oasis in this awful time and it really was just totally wonderful. I was genuinely really sad when the five days came to an end.
