The mountain dulcimer is known for its beautiful sound and ease of play. It is a great instrument for those who have always wanted to play a stringed instrument but who may have been wary. This class will begin in the Ionian mode and start with basic strumming across all the strings to enjoy the drone qualities of the instrument. For dulcimer students returning to Common Ground on the Hill, a new curriculum will be covered this year, building on the foundation established in the past. The joy of singing folk songs and ballads with the mountain dulcimer with some introductory harmonies will be introduced. The beautiful modal qualities of the mountain dulcimer will be shared along with a brief history of the mountain dulcimer. The class will progress at a relaxed pace while we learn the melodies together.
