The hammered dulcimer is a unique, great-sounding, fun-to-play instrument that arrived in America via England and Ireland. It appears throughout many countries over centuries and has contributed to the invention of the piano. So many tunes and songs we enjoy today sound wonderful when played on the hammered dulcimer. This book starts by teaching you how to hold the hammers and where notes are located on the instrument.
Songs you will learn include Skip To My Lou, Oh! Susanna, Amazing Grace, Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and Old MacDonald Had A Farm. In addition, the accompanying online audio allows you to play tunes with author, renowned hammered dulcimer performer and writer, Madeline MacNeil! Each recording includes count offs and access to the audio is included with the book.
