Intermediate Hammered Dulcimer

Intermediate Hammered Dulcimer with Anne Lough

Start thinking “outside the notes” and get the creative juices flowing as we explore techniques and tools to embellish a variety of more challenging tunes. Focus on using more of those elusive chromatic notes, hammer technique and expanding the use of chord notes and shapes.

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.

Class was quite good.

Sarah M. on February 16, 2021

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.

It answered all of my questions and I accomplished my goal of learning how to play the dulcimer. Our instructor was very patient and accomodating, extremely knowledgeable and personable.
