Richard Standard is Mr. Dulcimer in Sonoma County. He runs a program called "Bring in the Strings" of which Dunham is a part.
He visited our kindergarten to talk about dulcimers and give us our first lesson in playing them. Students began by pairing up: one to do the strumming, one to do the noting. Then they took turns playing the instruments by solo.
At the end of the day, he told a story.
