Neal Hellman's Workshops

Baroque Music for Mountain Dulcimer

Baroque Music (music written between 1600 – 1750) is a wonderful genre of music for the mountain dulcimer. We will first explore “Minuet 70” and “Allemande” by Belgium composer Johannes de Gruytters. Other compositions include: “Minuet in G Major,”“Beauty in Tears” (Turlough O’Carolan), “Canarios” (Gasper Sanz) and “Neal’s Maggot.” To really enjoy this workshop the student should be proficient in the three basic embellishments:  hammer-ons, pull-offs and slides.
