This site is hosted by Sally S. Smith, a
mountain dulcimer teacher in the Portland area.
What is this DULCIMER?
The lap (or mountain) dulcimer is, most simply, a three-stringed instrument, held on the lap and strummed! The dulcimer's simple fret board (usually tuned to an open "D" chord) and easy-to-read tablature enables even the MOST novice player to quickly make lovely music. And the more dulcimers together, the better, so groups form easily and the camaraderie blossoms!
