Learning to Play the Dulcimer

“Learning to Play the Dulcimer”
12:30—2:30 pm Instructor: Karen McQueen
Location: MGCCC Perkinston Campus Cafeteria Private Dining Room
Have you always wanted to play a musical instrument, but don’t know the first thing about reading music? You don’t have to read music to play the mountain (or “lap”) dulcimer. Join this introductory class where we “play by numbers” to learn the mountain dulcimer. Dulcimers and individual instruction will be provided by Pine Hill Dulcimers & Friends (please “Like” our Facebook page) for you to learn the basics in this small class setting. No Charge! To register, email ASAP so we can reserve a spot for you!
Join us beforehand for the Lifelong Learning Institute monthly buffet luncheon (only $6.00) at 10:45 a.m., also in the private dining room; the topic for the luncheon this month is Genealogy.
