MOUNTAIN DULCIMER, HAMMERED DULCIMER
Mountain dulcimer wizard and vocalist Willie Jaeger takes what is often thought of as a “simple” folk instrument and discovers its complexity. He strums, he fingerpicks, he flatpicks, he plays lead, and recently he’s been experimenting with electric dulcimer. His unique style of playing, and his popularity as a teacher at the renowned Swallow Hill School of Music, inspired Westword, Denver’s alternative weekly, to vote him Denver’s “Best Local Folkie.” He was a finalist (Silver) in the national mountain dulcimer championship at Winfield, Kansas, and in 2009 he won a Gold Medal for Best Original Instrumental Composition at the National Veterans Creative Arts Festival. An engaging singer with a lyrical baritone, he also plays hammered dulcimer and guitar, and composes instrumentals and the occasional song. Willie is an easy-going and accommodating teacher but he likes to think he's funny so come prepared to humor him!
Whether you’re a complete beginner or an experienced musician looking to take your playing to another level, private lessons can help you get there! Private lessons are available for kids, teens, and adults for a variety of instruments and skill levels.
