Beginning Appalachian Dulcimer

6-week Course

with Cheryl Frey

Wednesdays • 2:00-3:00pm

February 26, March 4, 11, 18, 25, April 1

$180 for 6 weeks

Taught by local musician Cheryl Frey, this class is for absolute beginners and those who may be able to play a song or two.  You will learn a bit of dulcimer history and how it can add to ensemble or solo accompaniment. We will 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. Dulcimer rental for six weeks is $20.

This class is currently full.

Creating Flowers with Alcohol Ink

with Sherry RIley

Saturday, March 21st • 10-11:30am

$35 (includes all needed materials)

Limited Registration Available

Ages 13 and up

Students will get a brief introduction to the tools (alcohol inks, alcohol, straws, cotton balls, eye dropper, boiler oiler, airbrush, and other added tools for fun-watercolor paints and paint pens). The instructor will then demonstrate a few different techniques - straw blowing, airbrushing and canned air. Once students have prepared the tile for the ink, they will be given 3 ink colors to share with others, then start creating a tile. Once finished, students will spray the tile with a finish to keep it clean and the colors bright. This workshop is easy, fun, and you will get to take home a finished product!
