About Deborah J. Hamouris

Thanks to previous Patrons I was able to create and publish my first book of mountain dulcimer compositions & arrangements, Indian Summer. I found that regular accountability was useful to the process and plan to do much the same during 2021.

Now I turn my efforts to composing and arranging for the baritone dulcimer, sharing my progress and process along the way.

There are always other aspects of creativity to the life of a performing & teaching musician. I'll be writing and illustrating them as the baritone book, and current creative projects, bear fruit.

Thank you for your support and interest as I continue to expand my body of work. I hope we'll all have a lot of fun and creative growth, here!

Dulcimerrily,
DJ
