Deborah Justice  -  hammered dulcimer, beginning guitar

Deborah Justice

I've been teaching hammered dulcimer for about 15 years now, playing for 25. I teach all levels, from beginning to advanced. I play a variety of styles, from old-time to Irish to Middle Eastern and klezmer. In addition to years of playing and teaching, I've got my PhD in ethnomusicology. My goal is to help you understand both your instrument and the style(s) of music you're playing on it better. And to have lots of fun! It doesn't matter if you can't read sheet music, think yourself" unmusical," or have a degree in performance: I can help you get more out of your dulcimer!
