Online Masterclass - 4/30/21


Single-Instructor workshops, band & house concerts, Club activities, monthly Jams

Dusty Turtle:

I'm looking forward to this class tonight, Bing. I just looked at the resource materials, and it looks like a lot of great stuff.  I especially like that chord progressions by song type.  That will be really helpful for people who want to join jams but don't know all (or any) of the tunes.



Thanks, Dusty!  Glad you'll be able to join us tonight. musicnod

Online Masterclass - 4/30/21


Single-Instructor workshops, band & house concerts, Club activities, monthly Jams


Join me for a 2-hour Mountain Dulcimer Masterclass on Friday, April 30th, 2021 at 7:30 pm EDT on Zoom. This session is for intermediate-level players but all skill levels are welcome! The focus will be on three areas of practice: technique, repertoire and composing/arranging for mountain dulcimer.  We'll work on exercises involving right-hand rhythm training, major and minor scales, chord shapes and embellishments like hammer-ons, pull-offs, bends, accents and harmonics.  We'll be playing through tunes that give us the chance to try out some new tricks as well as working with the secrets of improvisation (making it up as you go.)

Only 50 slots available - $25 for the session -  register to save your spot today !  

My patrons on Patreon attend for free!

Please drop me a line if you have any questions - many thanks!

How is the COVID-19 coronavirus affecting you?

Susie:

My favorite festival cancelled early in the year...the Evart Funfest. Going to miss another year. Hoping for a big celebratory year in 2022. Hope you'll be there again. This is from 2019.

I remember our meeting well!  If FunFest is a go next year, I'm planning to be there, fingers crossed.

Jae and I both got the J&J jab Monday and have only had a wee bit of fatigue plus the sore arm.  Will be interesting to see when a booster will be advised, though many in-person festivals have already scrapped spring/summer scheduling.
