Dulcimer

The lap dulcimer is a stringed folk instrument that evolved in the Appalachian Mountains in the 1800s. Dulcimers are the easiest stringed instrument for beginners to play, ideal for children, seniors and nonmusicians who want to play tunes or accompany singing. Dulcimers are a relatively quiet instrument. Their sweet quiet sound is well-suited to personal relaxation or playing in a cozy environment. The instructor is an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Music Education Department at Auburn University. Students will be required to provide their own dulcimer and lesson book for the class. Contact instructor for details. COVID-19 Note: Class will take place in a large room with participants spaced 6 feet apart. Each class is limited to no more than 10 participants and each participant will be required to wear a mask. FREE to the public.
