There are still places on the forthcoming Ryburn 3 Step workshop , the next in our series of Moving On events. If you've ever fancied playing an instrument but never quite had the confidence then this might the ideal opportunity for you to get started.

The Appalachian or Mountain dulcimer is one of the iconic instruments of American traditional music and has a special quality. Although, like most instruments, it is difficult to play well, it is also easy to play at a very basic level and quickly allows the beginner to play tunes and accompaniments.

If you fancy having a go, contact us to book a place. We'll have an instrument provided for you if you haven't got your own and who knows, by the end of the day….    If you can already play, then take the advantage of spending a day being guided by one of the best dulcimers tutors in the UK.

Sat. Feb 20th 2010 - 10am - 4pm
103, Oldham Rd, Ripponden, Sowerby Bridge, W Yorks HX6 4EB

Maximum 12 places £25 (£18 conc)
Reservations or 01422 822413.

Absolute beginners welcome. All instruments provided but bring your own too.

Liz Law has played mountain dulcimer for many years, both as a solo musician, and in duos and bands. She believes that mountain dulcimer is an underestimated instrument, and could be used to teach music to beginners, because it is easy to get started, playing tunes in a matter of a couple of hours' tuition.

She taught dulcimer at the Sage, Gateshead for over two years. She has also held workshops on numerous occasions, including the "Absolute Beginners" workshops, also run by the Sage, Gateshead. She is also willing to teach individuals either privately, or as a group.

In 2003 she was the main mountain dulcimer teacher at the Nonsuch Dulcimer club's annual get-together at Launde Abbey, in Leicestershire. This involved leading five workshops on various aspects of dulcimer playing over the weekend.

In 2003 and 2004 she taught at the club's "Winter Warmer" weekend at York.

She has also held dulcimer workshops at Folk Festivals, including Portpatrick and Lomond festivals.

Best wishes for a successful workshop. (I cannot cross the ocean to attend in person.)

I have played dulcimer for 15 years. It is not true that it is hard to play well. It is surprisingly easy to play it well, and I recommend it to anyone who wants to take up an instrument.
