Lessons and classes

I offer private lessons in the Wolfeboro/Ossipee area and online via Zoom. I also coach bands and offer workshops covering particular styles or instruments. I enjoy teaching motivated students at any level; beginners are welcome!

If you live outside the immediate area, consider visiting the scenic lakes region of New Hampshire for a day, weekend or weeklong music intensive. There are many places to stay nearby, from campgrounds to B&Bs, and lots of seasonal outdoor activities to enjoy while you’re here.

I have over 35 years of experience in teaching music, and I enjoy doing it. Instruments I teach include piano, hammered dulcimer, tsimbl, mandolin, bouzouki, fiddle, nyckelharpa, folk harp, fretted dulcimer, acoustic guitar, voice, autoharp, hurdy gurdy, and many more. Please call or email me for details or to schedule a lesson.

Some instruments are available for sale if you are considering lessons and don’t have an instrument yet. Right now I have a mandolin, several violins, an autoharp, a fretted dulcimer, a keyboard, an accordion, and a Celtic harp available. I also have a tsimbl (chromatic hammered dulcimer) available for rent if you’d like to try that out.

If you are interested in learning to play the nyckelharpa, the American Nyckelharpa Association has a loaner program to help you get started.

You are welcome to contact me for details or instrument recommendations for any instrument I teach.
