Dulcimer:
The Appalachian dulcimer is a fretted string instrument of the zither family, typically with three or four strings. Its origins are in the Appalachian region of the United States. The body extends the length of the fingerboard, and its fretting is generally diatonic.
It is a beautiful droning instrument to learn and great for accompanying yourself or others. I always start with the basics of hand and finger technique, notes, chords, and songs. As the student progresses, if interested, I will teach theory and soloing.

I thought I wanted to take viola lessons. Then I read her website and I realized that she might be able to help me get my voice back! I thought there was no hope ever. She has been extremely generous with her time, and I haven't seen her yet, but I'm not buying the viola I was planning on buying. I play cello, and piano still, but I am going to see if she can help me with my voice. She sounds incredible. I never dreamed that I could even have HOPE like this!

If you are interested in deepening your understanding of this amazing peice of American music history; look no further. I have 25 years of experience with the mountain dulcimer as a student, performer, and teacher; and became an International Mountain Dulcimer Champion in 2005. Every lesson is unique as I tailor curriculum to the student. Everything from basic chord progressions to in-depth music theory; all while learning the songs you want to play. All genres are welcome; though I do specialize in folk, old-time, & bluegrass.

The mountain dulcimer is a great instrument to play. One can learn many songs remarkably fast. I usually start with standard folk songs and basic strum patterns. Then the melody can be added later.

I have been teaching for over fifteen years. I play various styles including jazz, rock, blues, classical, country, and bluegrass. Instruments I teach include guitar, dobro, banjo, mandolin, and ukulele. I also teach the Q Chord. I have performed in many different bands including rock, top forty

I highly reccommend Kenton! My 10 year old son has been taking lessons online for the past couple of months. My son is an absolute beginner, however, is progressing quickly through the curriculum. Kenton is a fantastic teacher, knowledgable, patient, and kind. He keeps the lessons fun, age appriopriate and challenging. Choosing Kenton as our Mountain Dulcimer instructor has been the best decision for us. Give Kenton a try; you won't regret it!

I enjoy teaching beginning and intermediate dulcimer chords, strums, and playing styles to students. Dulcimer playing can be used as an accompaniment to singing melodies or as a solo instrument. In home lessons only.

About Dee

*** Travel Equipment *** Books. Students must have their own instrument (keyboards are acceptable for taking piano lessons). I always council students on brand, quality of instrument they are purchasing before they buy it. *** Specialties *** I have been a public school music educator for

Dee is very knowledgeable and really listens to you in order to critique what needs tuning.
TONY
I just recently started with Dee. She is doing a great job of helping me realistically assess my performance, and constructively set goals to improve the aspects that need work. It's been fun and very helpful.
Bonnie
Our 8 year old son had his first Guitar lesson with Dee this past weekend, and she was amazing. She wasted no time getting down to brass tacks with our son, showing him the various parts of the guitar, how to hold it and within minutes he knew two chords. She was able to keep our kiddo engaged, offered great praise and positive feedback/reinforcement and kept him on task for the entire 45 minute lesson. We could not be happier and cannot wait to see what he learns during his next lessons with her!

"I loved working with Julie. She considered what my goals were for playing and the playing style I was interested in. She then guided my lesson practice toward those goals, while at the same time making sure I was getting the underlying foundational principles to build upon. I'm off to a good strong start and I'm certain I will continue to build my skills and enjoy playing music for many years."
