Mountain Dulcimer: A Survival Guide For Beginners is a 75 page document complete with playing instruction and traditional tunes designed to give the beginning dulcimer player a solid foundation in playing the mountain dulcimer. I meet many music therapists that tell me they own a mountain dulcimer, but don’t really know what to do with it. After 25 years of teaching dulcimer to students in the public schools and adults at music festivals and camps, I have compiled a text that is very sequential and builds on previous learning before adding more skills (Just like a good music therapist would do!!) This is a great resource that music therapists can use for their own personal skill building, and implemented directly into session planning. I love using the mountain dulcimer as my primary accompanying instrument, and you will too!
Take warning…this just may get you started on a path of “dulcimer addiction.”
