Mary Lynn


Teaches these classes at Traditions Weeks

Mary Lynn Michal has a gift for teaching with a unique approach which combines her experience as a professional symphonic french horn player, her degrees in music education and ten years of mastering the hammered dulcimer. Having made the switch from the highly structured classical music world to a completely different style of traditional music gives Mary Lynn access to a broad range of teaching strategies.

Students are drawn to Mary Lynn for her passion for teaching, her belief in her students, and her unique style of individualizing instruction which allows students to reach their potential which is often beyond their wildest dreams.

Mary Lynn teaches classes online through her website. Her signature classes Mastering Theory and Sharpen Your Skills have attracted more than 350 hammered dulcimer players from around the world. She teaches nearly 100 private students as well as weekend group retreats at her studio, Sassafras Ridge, in Middletown MD.
