I love the sweet sound of this instrument and all the wonderful teachers! After many years of ill health and having to stop working early at 57, I'm feeling much better. I felt a very strong desire to play the dulcimer and also meet others. I discovered the Berkeley Dulcimer Gathering three days later (!) so I challenged myself to attend a full day of workshops and enjoyed it immensely. And then discovered FOTMD!  Everyone here is so warm and welcoming. I look forward to getting to know folks, learning more and maybe even joining a jam when that's possible again. I suspect there are online platforms even now being developed that will allow us to eventually hear everyone at the same time. Until then, I look forward to the time until we can all actually be in the same room again.

Hi Cheryl, 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.
