Demystifying the Hammered Dulcimer
 

Hello and Welcome to Songbird Dulcimers!

DON'T MISS THE JULY- AUGUST SPECIAL ON THE SPECIAL OFFERS PAGE!
Welcome to our web site, and welcome to the dulcimer community! There is a very rich and vibrant world of folks just like you out there who play the dulcimer.  So if you are new, on behalf of everybody, welcome!

We are both "people" people, and it has been the blessing of our lives to be involved.  We have met thousands of wonderful folks, we love it, and we'd love to meet you, too.  So if you aren't close by, drop us a note on the contact form (it is an email) or call.  If you are in our neighborhood, or passing through, come on by! We don't have regular hours, so call ahead, and make sure we are here.

Our driving force is helping folks to make music together.  Our modern society with its for profit music system has separated us, and we don't make music together any longer.  Now musicians are regarded as a separate class, and the rest of us are supposed to just listen.  But we believe that all of us were all created to make music.  We can all sing, and music is best when it is made together with others. So if there is anything we can do to help you make music yourself, please allow us to.  Remember what we always tell people:  Your dulcimer is a social animal, it needs friends.  Doesn't have to be another dulcimer, just some other musical instruments.  So go find some people to play with.  New friends are out there waiting to be made, and the dulcimer world is a great place to start.  

Please enjoy the site and don't miss the page with all the videos.
 
Thanks!
Chris and Melanie Foss
