with Aubrey Atwater (continuing beginner)
A continuing beginner dulcimer workshop with Aubrey Atwater will be offered Feb. 27, 2023. A minimum of 6 students is needed to hold the workshop; prepayment is necessary! 

A CONTINUING BEGINNING dulcimer workshop will be held Monday, February 27, 2023, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. and the fee is $30.00. 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.
