About the Lessons

Depending on the level of the student- we will explore fundamentals; i.e. finger placement, right and left hand technical skills with scales, arpeggios, music theory, rhythm and coordination, and enhancement of musicality through expression and knowledge of different styles/genres. I also love to incorporate improvisation and songwriting into my lessons.

Age minimum for lessons is 5 years old.

Dulcimer Lessons

Appalachian Dulcimer Workshop 2022.png

Local musician Cheryl Frey is back offering a class for beginners and an intermediate level class.  You will learn a bit of dulcimer history and how it can add to ensemble or solo accompaniment.  Learn to play simple melodies and chords (old time, gospel, and folk) by ear.  The beautiful tones of the instrument will have you hooked in no time!

If you have a dulcimer please bring it, but if you don’t own one BMCA has a few that can be used during class or rented if you’d like to take it home to practice.

This workshop is a four-week series meeting on Wednesdays. Dates for the series are: January 26, February 2, 9,16.

 

Beginner class  12:00-1:30

 Intermediate class 1:45-3:15

Cost for the series is $180

Dulcimer rental for four weeks is $20
