Hammered Dulcimer Academy at Perelandra!

For 2016 ... Song of the Wood, Jerry Read Smith and Perelandra Studio is excited to announce ...


Seven (7) ... week-long "camps" of personalized Hammered Dulcimer instruction by 4 of the best teachers in America!

Imagine this ... you arrive in Beautiful Asheville, North Carolina on a weekend ... make your way to the ridge top location of Perelandra (Jerry's recording/performance studio) ... walk out on the deck of Jerry's home and join your new classmates for some hors d'oeuvres ... maybe a glass of wine or cup of tea, conversation and relaxation.  Take a few minutes for a quick tour of the "grounds" and then pick your spot to set up your instrument .... and this is the really cool part .... where it will STAY until the following Friday evening when you pack up to leave, what will surely be, a transformational week for your Hammered Dulcimer playing!

Starting Monday morning each day will begin with coffee or tea and "treats" sometime between 8:00 and 9:00 AM ... followed by class until lunch.  Lunch is provided on the deck (of the house) or inside if weather dictates .... then it's back to class for the afternoon.  After class .... decompression and reflection on the deck as the decision of "where to go for dinner" ensues!  Each visiting instructor will have arranged a variety of Asheville's eclectic dining options where you can either join the group ... or venture off on your own ... your choice!
