Dulcimer Man

Richard Standard is Mr. Dulcimer in Sonoma County. He runs a program called "Bring in the Strings" of which Dunham is a part.

He told students about the parts of a dulcimer.

Here he helps students find the fingering positions to make the same notes.

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.

If you are interested in learning more about him, visit his website: Stories and Strings.
