The Mountain Dulcimer (or lap dulcimer) is of Appalachian heritage. Its three strings provide a sweet sound perfect for traditional or gospel music. If you love music but have little musical background, the dulcimer is a great place to start.
As a Certified Music Practitioner, (MHTP.org),
I most often use the dulcimer at bedside for my patients. The mountain dulcimer is very personal and portable. Perfect for hospitals and nursing homes.
I teach at the following locations:
Artichoke Music in Portland
Canby Community Ed Program
and at my Colton home
