The traditional way of learning is...

knee to knee or in our case, screen to screen. 

Students will receive .mp3 sound files to listen before class to the tunes we'll be learning, together with the reinforcement of written tablature. 

Finally, a video archive of each week's session is provided to students as well.

The Dulcimer Community is welcoming....

This course gives you the skills to enter into jam sessions of traditional music and strum along with enthusiasm and joy!
