HAMMERED DULCIMER INSTRUCTOR SEPTEMBER 14th WUP

August 24, 2019

 

 

Ilace Mears, from Branson, MO, was the 2016 National Hammered Dulcimer Champion.  She is an award-winning hammered dulcimer and violin player - but hasn’t figured out a way to play both at the same time!  She brings a classically trained background to the world of traditional folk music, with a deep appreciation for both.  Ilace is having a blast teaching and playing with friends from across the continent at dulcimer festivals, jams, and other gatherings.

Now What Can I Do with This Tune?

Playing expressively closes the gap between adequate and beautiful.  Explore ways to make this leap and avoid "whamdiddle syndrome!"
