Courses

Many people have seen a Mountain Dulcimer during a vacation to the Appalachian Mountains, they may even have one displayed on the wall or discretely stored under a bed, but many are unaware of the ancestry of this uniquely American folk instrument. In addition to exploring the dulcimer's history and how it moved from being a regional to a national instrument, the course will discuss the people involved in its development and demonstrate the music traditionally played on the Mountain Dulcimer.
This American folk instrument, which was born in the Appalachian Mountains in the early 1800's, can be played "by numbers," by the most experienced musician or someone with little to no musical background. The instrument sits on your lap and only has 3 or 4 strings (this is not a hammered dulcimer). While many people have purchased this instrument in their travels through the mountains, many do not have the resources to learn to play. This is your opportunity to get out and see what it sounds like.
