with Aubrey Atwater (beginner)
A beginner dulcimer workshop with Aubrey Atwater will be offered Nov. 7, 2022. A minimum of 6 students is needed to hold the workshop; Prepayment is necessary! 

Our BEGINNING dulcimer workshop will be held on Monday, November 7, 2022, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and the fee is $25.00.
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.

So we can be assured of meeting the minimum needed to hold any of our class offerings, BRT NEEDS PRE-PAYMENT AT LEAST 3 DAYS BEFORE THE START OF ANY CLASS (and hopefully sooner!) or we'll need to cancel at that time.
