Festival of Learnshops - Berea, KY


  • Berea Baptist Church 310 Chestnut Street Berea, KY 40403 United States (map)

In this intermediate and beyond workshop, we will work on smoothing out your playing and playing more expressively on your mountain dulcimer. We will learn and use techniques such as slides, hammer-ons, pull-offs, harmonics, vibrato, dynamics, and more. We’ll also focus on playing in group and ensemble settings, with a special emphasis on building repertoire from a wide range of genres, such as waltzes and aires, classical, old-time, Tin Pan Alley, international folk music, and more, as time permits. Primary tuning used will be D-A-D, and a capo may be required for some of materials presented.
