Mountain Dulcimer II is designed for those with some familiarity on their instrument. We will explore scales, finger-dexterity exercises, chords and at least two tunings. New tunes will be presented each week in the chord-melody and cross-string techniques.
*Pre-requisites: comfort with tuning and tablature, some melody tune experience, understanding of fretting and basic strums, and a nodding acquaintance with chords.
Teacher, Deborah Hamouris, has played mountain dulcimer since 1979 and taught it for over a decade. She has a BA in Music and gets excited about teaching music both privately & in classes. Deborah currently directs two singing groups and plays in a folk duo, The DulciMates, with husband Buffalo. In 2013 she created the Berkeley Dulcimer Gathering at the Freight & Salvage, which takes place again on 6/10/17.
