Why I generally play solo
Playing and jamming difficulties...HELP ME!
As a recovered music teacher, those rules give me heartburn! LOL!
Ex-brass player here! I majored in euphonium and minored in piano in undergrad (was a music education major), and played for several years after graduating. Once I left music ed as a profession, I moved toward instruments that were more fun as a solo player -- piano, uke, autoharp, and now dulcimer. I still love my wind band and brass band music, though, and I still have a lot of connections in the brass world!
If you like folk music on brass, check out Percy Grainger, Gustav Holst, Vaughan Williams, Malcolm Arnold, Edward Gregson, and Philip Sparke. They're the kings of British brass band and folk music!!
Good morning, FOTMD!
I'm newer to this site and even newer to dulcimer playing. I have one fantastic instrument already and another one coming. How do you folks like to store your instruments? I'm hoping to find a stand like the one in the attached image (although my husband won't be happy if I attempt to fill it too quickly!!!). I would definitely like a stand that is pretty and looks more like nice furniture than just a utility.
I would love your ideas!! Thanks in advance!!
P.S. I'm not a builder. No plans, please.
