CTO ... Sandbridge HD Spring Retreat "Relaxed" Week - still some spaces available

Been thinking about attending one of Ken Kolodner's Sandbridge Hammered Dulcimer Retreats, but not sure you're ready for the "intensive" part of it? Here's your chance!

Check This Out ...  There is now a week designed specifically for first-timers who would like a more relaxed pace. Scheduled via Zoom this spring, the class will run March 28 - April 2, 2021 ... and there are still a few spaces available.

The socially distanced conditions during the COVID pandemic have demanded new and creative ways to "gather" in the dulcimer community. Unsure about video conferencing? After attending the online version of Sandbridge this past fall, I can assure you that Ken and his assistants, Mary Lynn Michal and Laurie McCarrier, truly have the zoom thing figured out. The silver lining? More students than ever are able to enjoy the benefits of Ken's teaching ... no travel required, and the price is right!

It's a new year. Perhaps "play more music" or "get serious about the dulcimer" is on your resolution list. What are you waiting for? Check it out!
