Dulcimer Celebration 2014

Come celebrate the joy and beauty of both the hammered and lap dulcimer in a small, intimate, non-competitive setting. Unlike any other dulcimer camp, Dulcimer Celebration, now in its 15th year, is a unique week designed for both hammered and mountain dulcimers to provide the opportunity to improve technique, expand repertoire and have fun with harmony and chords. With four instructors, two skill levels are offered for both instruments – novice/intermediate or intermediate/advanced. Morning class time is spent in a concentrated session building skills and repertoire with at least two different instructors through the week. A flexible week, participants can choose to stay with one instrument, or do a couple mornings of hammered and a couple mornings of mountain if they wish.
