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. 

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. 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 a TAB pdf (not necessarily always associated with the mp3), and for $10 per month, you get the mp3, a TAB pdf, plus access to some very easy-to-play TAB exercises, and some free download links to mp3 audio and more pdf music and TAB! Higher levels ($20 and up) will have intermediate level instruction and insights into how you can get more music out of your mountain dulcimer, depending on questions and feedback from students.

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 recording this music and developing these educational materials for you: there is nothing in this whole wide world I'd rather be doing! 

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)
