After retiring from a 42-year teaching career, I jumped into the dulcimer world with both feet, as an instructor at dulcimer retreats and a workshop leader at festivals.   Private lessons are also offered to individuals in the surrounding area.

Workshop Suggestions:

I am willing to come to your club!  Here is a list of a few of my fun theme-based workshops.  In addition to the fun collection of songs, the workshop participant will receive specific instruction on use of chord/melody playing, using a capo, and using a variety of techniques to smooth out playing.  Content within each workshop offering may be modified for the level needed.

List of Possible Workshops and more to come!
