15 Minutes a Day!


Book – For Hammered Dulcimer

(All Levels)

The purpose of this warm-up book is to provide time saving exercises to catapult your playing to the next level. Practicing to perfect the hammered dulcimer without direction is a lot like chopping down a tree with a sledge hammer. You can get the job done, but it will take a long time! The pages in this book offer much needed direction and serve as a tool shed of sharp practicing axes to cut the tree down faster.

This book is full of valuable instruction in standard music notation. As such, illustrations are not provided. Each simple pattern is easily memorized and moved about on the instrument, making illustrations unnecessary if you know your note names on the dulcimer. If not, your teacher can help you find each pattern on your instrument.
