The mountain dulcimer is an American fretted folk instrument that is easy to learn, with no musical experience required. Usually made in an hourglass or teardrop shape, it has only three or four strings that are pressed from above and strummed while held on the lap. Students can typically learn one or two simple songs in the first lesson.
