Join Award-Winning Mountain Dulcimer Player Bing Futch for a 3-day series of sessions!

July 13th - 15th, 2020 at the Osceola County Fairgrounds, Bing Futch will present a 3-Day Master Session Series for mountain dulcimers right before the ODPC Funfest in Evart, Michigan.  Designed for all skill levels, the workshop will take place in the OJ North Building

Pricing is a la carte, pick which of the nine sessions you wish to attend and pay for just those or go for the whole enchilada! The more sessions you choose, the more each additional session is discounted.  

Beginning Sessions will focus on fundamentals such as right-hand strumming exercises and left-hand fretboard orientation, learning different tunings, reading tablature, basic music theory and repertoire-building.



Intermediate Sessions will focus on embellishments, chord-building and chord movement, melody improvisation and repertoire-building.

Advanced Sessions will focus on trouble-shooting to smooth out your playing, learning how to arrange tunes in the chord-melody style, alternate tunings and repertoire-building.

 

All sessions come with copious amounts of resource material and video downloads to help you remember how everything fits together.  The three Dulcimerica episodes above feature some of this footage from the 2018 sessions.
