Also known Appalachian dulcimer or lap dulcimer, this instrument is one of the few instruments actually developed in the US. Adapted from European folk instruments, the dulcimer is found throughout the Appalachian mountains and is the ideal instrument for learning to play tunes by ear or accompanying songs.

If you are new to the dulcimer or want to brush up on basic skills, this is the class for you. We will cover tunings, strumming patterns, basic chords, and learning to read TAB.

You’ll find there is a whole world of music for the dulcimer, and a whole world of dulcimer players out there for you to discover!
