Thread-topic: Hammered Dulcimer classes or lessons

Google "hammered dulcimer lessons"-- you'll find lots of options there. Mark Alan Wade, Jess Dickinson, Brett Ridgeway, and many others offer on-line (Skype, YouTube et al) instructions. Look at Everything Dulcimer website and subscribe to Dulcimer Players News for more suggestions and help. If you're on Facebook, look for "Hammered Dulcimer Players" group.

Hammered dulcimer is not more difficult than the psaltery, and you'll agree when you understand the layout and tuning of the instrument. Don't get discouraged!! It's a great group of folks who will be more than happy to share their expertise with you!

My name is Janice.  I live in Salt Lake City Utah.  My husband bought me a hammered dulcimer.  He thought I’d like it and of course I do but the problem is I have no idea how to play it.  It came with a stand, music, tuner, and case and hammers.  He bought it from a music store and was told It was made in the 1990 and wasn’t played much. I have looked on line but there’s nothing better than instructions in person. I can pick out tunes but not in the way it should be played.  I can only play melody.  I play a Bowed Psaltery that I taught myself because it’s an easy instrument to play if you have music in your soul and heart and I think I play it pretty well, but the dulcimer is much much harder.


Is there anyone receiving  this message that could guide me to someone that could give me lessons?  I would be willing to travel if I had to.


I am looking forward to your reply.  


Warm Regards,

Janice Jakeman
