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 day with the skills necessary to continue playing and enjoying the music on your own.

The capacity for this class is 12 students. This class is presented in collaboration with the John C. Campbell Folk School. There will be an optional Orientation and Closing Ceremony hosted from the Folk School campus that students can attend online.
