Richard Young  -  Mountain Dulcimer, Hammered Dulcimer, and Clawhammer Banjo.

Richard Young

I am very flexible in my approach, always listening to the student and taking them from where they are to where they want to go. My rates are very reasonable at $15 per hour. I especially enjoy working with students who know nothing about music. I focus more on learning techniques than learning alot of songs. The techniques are then applied to songs. I've been playing mountain dulcimer for over 40 years, clawhammer banjo for more than 50 years, and hammered dulcimer for 35 years.
