Steve is teaching one Mountain Dulcimer Workshop and Two Hammered Dulcimer Workshops

1.  Intermediate to Advanced Mountain Dulcimer Class:

Playing Blues in A on a Mountain Dulcimer tuned DAd.  The mountain dulcimer is perfectly set up to play blues in the key of A when tuned in our familiar tuning!  We'll play 12 bar blues progression, the pentatonic minor and blues scales to channel the blues in our soul through our dulcimer!

2.  Hammered Dulcimer Beginner Class:

Things I Wish I Had Known when I began to Play My Hammered Dulcimer.   I was so drawn to the instrument that I bought, built and played it in public in a week.  (I won't vouch for the quality of the performance! and while I remember and appreciate the enthusiasm, I don't recommend this path.)  13 years later I decided to actually learn how the instrument worked and how I might learn to play it better.  Here's what I wish I had known.

3.  Hammered Dulcimer Advancing Beginner/Intermediate Class:

Removing the Expensive Notes.  Using a familiar tune (The Ash Grove), we will explore the whole instrument with melodic and harmonic arranging ideas like I've done with Tweaking Twinkles (in Dulcimer Players News).
