For beginning mountain dulcimer players and those who want to study the basics that will help make you a better player.
Two Kinds of Dulcimer: Mountain and Hammered
The Old Town School offers both mountain and hammered dulcimer.
The mountain dulcimer is a versatile instrument that's fun and easy to play due to the comfortable position and layout of the fret board.
The hammered dulcimer, the forerunner to the piano, is lots of fun to play and has a beautiful sound that will captivate you. Hammered dulcimer and mountain dulcimer players can join the Dulcimer Ensemble.
Private lessons are available for beginning mountain and hammered dulcimer students.
