Friday, Sept. 9 to Wednesday, Sept. 14, 2016 – Spend a week learning to play the Appalachian dulcimer with Heidi Muller at the Cedar Lakes Crafts Center in Ripley, WV. This will be Heidi’s 11th year teaching this Road Scholar program. The class is geared to complete beginners, and has gotten rave reviews from those who have never touched a dulcimer to those who have tried to start on their own or had a few lessons. By the end of the week you will have learned a variety of playing techniques, good practice habits, and have a repertoire of new tunes to take home with you. To sign up, go to www.roadscholar.org.
