The mountain dulcimer is my life. Ever since I first heard one in the late 1960s, I've been totally in love with this unique American folk instrument. As far as I'm concerned, the mountain dulcimer is THE most welcoming musical instrument on the planet, and here my main mission is to share with you the joy I have found in playing simple folk and Celtic tunes, rounds, and easy-to-play chord exercises. I'd also take great delight in showing you how to make up your own jams and musical compositions! 

This Patreon platform is a really amazing and wonderful thing! It basically allows you to download mp3 audio files, pdf files of music and tablature, and more detailed pdf files with some very basic beginners instruction. I will be doing one mp3 audio recording per month plus the associated tablature and instruction, so you can get access to my Patron-only feed for as little as $1 per month (for the mp3 download). For $5 per month, you get the mp3 plus the TAB pdf, and for $10 per month, you get the mp3, the TAB, plus another pdf with some very basic beginner-level instruction. The Patron-only feed, which is available to all levels, will include some beginning and intermediate level instruction tips, plus free download links to mp3 audio and more pdf music and TAB!. Higher levels will have intermediate and advanced level instruction and insights into how you can get more music out of your mountain dulcimer.

I love Patreon because it is like on-going crowdfunding: it allows you to support my work with your monthly subscription. I'm really fired-up about developing these educational materials for you: there is nothing in this whole wide world I'd rather be doing! And Patreon makes it SO EASY to us to communicate. You can tell me what you like, how you are doing, and how I can improve my explanations to help you learn.

Upon signing up as a Patron (at the $1 per month level), you will instantly get the following rewards:

  • a free pdf ebook download of my Irish Airs, English Folksongs, and Originals (the originals are mostly from June - December lessons here at Patreon!)
  • a free pdf ebook download of my Dulcimer Solos 2 book
  • a free pdf download of my ebook Music Theory and Chord Reference for the Mountain Dulcimer - Tuning DAD)

Goals
$281 of $500 per month
My next goal will be focused mostly on getting help with my video production. But I'm also making progress on improving the quality of my audio tracks. Microphones are still needed here as well as more time for experiments.
