As a Carmel graduate, returning with a masters in education, I am thrilled to offer my love of teaching children and adults the joy of playing the hammered and mountain dulcimer (and 7 other instruments). Groups of students will have opportunity to play for the community! Adult groups are forming as well. I've been a performer on the dulcimer, guitar and pennywhistle - and now offer opportunity for students of all ages, young and "seasoned" alike to share in the playing of these fascinating instruments.
In 2003, out of curiosity, I attended the world's largest dulcimer fest located in Evart, Michigan. Since then, I have served the festivals in Michigan and other states as an instructor and performer sharing the stage with national dulcimer champions. It's been an honor to be featured in musicians' cds, weddings, art exhibits, church events as well as the Indianapolis Municipal Band, the Indianapolis Children's Choir, the Mayor's banquet and the Chamber of Commerce. My dulcimer academy offers private and group lessons as well as workshops and jam sessions.
What can I say? Music just makes people smile. It's the thrill of a great foot stompin' Celtic or fiddle tune, the essence of a soft memory from an elegant waltz or classical tune or the needed delight after a busy day. Allow me to offer easy lessons or to create a wonderful atmosphere for your special event.
Is your dulcimer tucked away? Dust it off and let's play! What? No dulcimer? I happen to sell and rent them!
