The week of May 30 was an exciting one for 10 beginning dulcimer players. Although several students had a music background, there were a number of others who couldn’t read music, and felt they “weren’t musical.” Under teacher Anne Lough and myself as the assistant, students went from being terrified of the 60 plus strings to being able to play several tunes. In fact, the entire class played for “Morning Song” on Friday to a packed Davidson Hall! All this was accomplished with much laughter, sharing, and fun! Everyone left at the end of the week talking about attending the continuing class later in the year. As Dorothy said, “I never thought I’d be able to really hear music.”
