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, (,
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.
