By the way, my compliments to you both and to Dulcimer Crossing for the online lessons. They’re so well done and of significant help to learning this instrument. Loving the new Absolute Beginner series too!
Guys, I am so thrilled. You just have no idea. I absolutely love the new beginner section. I think you are on a great track! Some of it I may know, but a refresher is always good. And it will also help me learn your teaching "style" and make the future lessons much easier to understand since I'll have the vocabulary down.
Your website is fantastic, and inspiring. It is so incredibly helpful for a beginner like me.
I love the songs and the instruction that are available on DulcimerCrossing. The site is well-organized and easy to navigate. I highly recommend this site!
I've been working some on the multiple bounce rolls to help with control. My grip seems to be getting better.
I found what is most helpful right now is working on argeggios. So I've been going through Holy, Holy, Holy and those arpeggio drills. This is helping me learn chords, which has always been a hard thing for me to pick up.
I love the absolute beginners classes.I know I will learn from them and need them. Thanks so much for the reply and am looking forward to all your teaching.
It's very reassuring that you are out there with such prompt support. Thank you!
I'll check out "Soaring" in a minute - that's what finally enticed me to sign up! As a devoted "Steve follower," I've enjoyed watching this venture take shape.
I am looking forward to the lessons. Even though I have been teaching music for 28 years, I have wanted to learn to play dulcimer for a long time. I haven't found anyone else who plays here, but am hoping that a few of my piano students who take an interest.
I've had my hammered dulcimer for several years, but since I retired from teaching (music) it's been in a corner and I determined this morning to try and find a teacher so I will be accountable to practice as I should on my beautiful instrument. And I found your web site which will suit me perfectly. I'm also a piano teacher, teach a handbell ensemble (if we get enough boys and girls) at the university in my town, and play the piano for a small church on Sundays.
I haven't worked on my dulcimer much in a while, but I got it out today and checked your website. Wow...you've added a lot since I was there! Looks good. I appreciate the videos of Steve playing the MD, especially when the camera is looking down on the instrument. I can't keep up, but I'll keep trying!
I wanted to take a moment and thank you for your input, when I reached out to you, about my disappointment over family obligations overtaking my musical endeavors. You were/are, of course, right when you told me that I should not worry about it, and rejoice in my children (which I do). So, I've taken your advice to heart and again; thank you.
Thank you! Please, continue on with Old Joe Clark. I can't wait to get home from work so I can get started.
