Carla Maxwell  -  chromatic and standard mountain dulcimer

Carla Maxwell

I teach others to play the way I play, and my style is simple. I also co-teach workshops with Adrian kosky. We teach without tab and show others how we mix our methods of playing to make new sounds with familiar tunes. We guide others to do the same in hands-on workshops using cardboard dulcimers. We travel between our two homes -- one in Daylesford, Victoria, Australia, and the other in Clarksdale, Mississippi, U.S.A.
