Workshops

This is a place to find information that every Hammer Dulcimer player and/or builder would find useful. The workshops given here have been used as handouts for workshops I have given or for private lessons. Each topic is usually only one page long and can stand alone as a study guide. Topics will be changed each month and removed after one year.   I hope you come back again.  You are welcome to download and duplicate any of these workshops for friends or students.

DECEMBER 8

This is a tune I wrote from patterns I was using to accompany a
tune called My Birthday Waltz. I changed the timing to 4/4, and
now I have no recollection of the tune that inspired some of the
patterns. I named it December 8 because that is my birthday.
