Saturday, March 30th
At HMT's Lessons Studio (7010 Westmoreland Ave, Takoma Park MD)
Cost: $30 per workshop, or $55 for both
Both of these workshops are appropriate for players who have previously taken Karen's "String Side Up for Beginners" workshop, or who otherwise know a few dulcimer basics.
1:00 – 2:30pm: Growing Left Hand Technique
It’s time to get all your fingers into the act! Explore basic chords and discover how to find them on the fret board. Learn strategies for efficient fingering and see how they can enhance the melody in any tune.
3:00-4:30pm: No Pick? No Problem!
The dulcimer can be played by finger picking individual strings to bring out gentle melodies and sweet harmonies. You’ll be introduced to different finger picking styles to find the one that fits you best. We’ll practice a number of different patterns and incorporate them into several tunes to enjoy in class and beyond.
Loaner dulcimers will be available! You must pre-register to reserve one (please indicate in the "special instructions" section of your online order if you need a loaner). More info on Karen: www.sweetstrings.biz
