About our Hammered Dulcimer Teachers…
Carolyn Cruso – Eastsound, WA, Online
Carolyn Cruso is one of the best hammered dulcimer teachers in North-Western Washington State as well as online. Carolyn enjoys helping the student to develop lush arrangements that fit their current technique level, encouraging technique development through scales, arpeggios and rhythmic study. Additionally she works with songwriters to craft potent lyrics, melody and chord progressions. Carolyn’s philosophy on teaching and learning is to always keep an open mind. You start from where you are. You delight in the discovery of music and in the wonders of experimentation as well as the discipline of music basics. It is experiential and systematic at once. It is a give and take where the teacher learns though teaching and the student teaches through learning. Carolyn believes in a gentle yet focused approach. Click here for full bio.
