Workshops:

 

2:00 - 3:30 PM (90 min)

Workshop #1

Zig-Zags, Triangles, and other easy patterns that can greatly enhance your musicality and freedom, for novice through advanced players - We'll explore clear-cut methods of breaking away from playing specific known notes (like F# or A) and working more from the actual shapes on the dulcimer itself --- handy for developing fresh chord patterns and accompaniment rhythms, but also amazing for free improvisation that can make your playing sound so good even without thinking, that listeners may be thrilled an applaud --- really!  Several pdf handouts will be provided.'


4:00 - 5:30 PM (90min)

Workshop #2

Christmas Repertoire

We'll focus on five special Christmas pieces:  First, ‘Star in the East’, ‘Babe of Bethlehem’ and ‘Houston’, which are the only three actual Christmas shape-note hymns. We will explore some ideas for how to play them on hammered dulcimer or other instruments. Then, using the two beautiful but repetitive melodies ‘We Three Kings’ and ‘The First Noel’, Tim will share how he has "solved the puzzles" of making them into intriguing dulcimer solos.  There will be pdf handouts for all of these.  Tim will also send a list of his own best holiday repertoire and time will be given for attendees to request a discussion of how any particular one was made into a good showpiece.
