Mountain Dulcimer Workshop

UPDATED 11/25/23
There will be another continuing mountain dulcimer workshop in Winter, 2024

with Aubrey Atwater (continuing levels)

A dulcimer workshop for CONTINUING players will be held Sunday, September 17, 2023, from 12:00-3:00 p.m., and the fee is $45.00. Minimum of 6 students needed to hold workshop; prepayment necessary!  The many possibilities of the mountain dulcimer are part of the beauty of this extraordinary Appalachian instrument. Moving at a comfortable pace, the dulcimer will be approached from a variety of angles in this introductory two-hour workshop: simple repertoire, tuning, singing and playing chords, using the traditional noter, strumming, fingerpicking, and any other topics that may "happen" as a result of group chemistry and as time allows. Participants will leave the class amazed with themselves and full of new ideas. If you can, please bring a dulcimer in good playing condition; otherwise, contact Aubrey about renting at: or by calling (401) 392-1909.
