I make Native American style flutes, 5-string kanteles, lyres and other wood items.  Recently completed making my first harp. Love carving spoons and fan birds.  Enjoy playing many different instruments -- dulcimer, ukulele, drum... Received a mountain dulcimer for graduation, but admittedly I keep forgetting to practice the chords.

Hi Judy, I am really enjoying my mornings playing my flutes, it is even more relaxing consintrating on my breathing closing my eyes and hearing the sounds of my flutes.

I believe I needed to learn to breath again! surprised

Enjoy your day and thanks again for your encouragement.

Hi Judy, I got my N.A. flutes, so beautiful. I am just practicing with holding the right angle for air flow, doesn't take much breath. I am also just trying the scale (6 hole) up and down for consistent sound, you know whether it feels ok with Left hand over right or the other way around.

I appreciate your help and interest, so exciting. If you want to follow me then we can do Private messages.

I am trying to keep it just to ear full of sound with my flute keeping it simple.

I know that eventually I will enjoy playing to music.

I have the Spirit Song Book w/cd by Odell Borg and when I am ready this will be fun. Also he sent an introductory book and a biginning cd.

I checked out your site Judy, very nice work on you instruments, I wish you the best.

Thanks so much for your help....Lexie

Hi Judy. Yes, I've made almost 40 dulcimers so far. Started 10 years ago at age 74 and haven't made any for the last year. Most have been given to family. It was such a thrill when I strung up my first one and heard its (to me) beautiful voice. Hope you get to make one soon. Best wishes to you and yours.

Hi Judy, and welcome to the wonderful world of the Friends of the Mountain Dulcimer. It's a good place to come, spend some time, learn about the dulcimer, and to meet some good people.

Welcome, Judy, to this little corner of dulcimer heaven. Now that you've dusted the dulcimer off, dance, to quote the title of an old Bonnie Carol book. Hope you enjoy it here.
