I have a degree in education that helps me to communicate the dulcimer to all ages. Also I have studied music and theory at college and at a music conservatory. Would love to help you to grow from a beginner to the level you would like, up to becoming a confident performer and arranger for the dulcimer.

Janet Swartz  -  Mountain Dulcimer

Janet Swartz

When I became a dulcimer player, my world expanded in fantastic ways -- my relationship with music, friends and even travel have all grown through my involvement with the dulcimer. I like nothing better than sharing this world with new folks. The journey from player to teacher and performer has been a joyous one; come join me. (In prior lives, I've taught varied topics, from English to home-buying; dulcimer is definitely the most fun.)
