The Villages - May 2017 - 29
Stafford said she appreciates the
portability of her dulcimer.
"I take her everywhere," she said. "In fact,
I have named her 'Harmony.'"
Many club members have named their
beloved instruments as well. It's a testament
to the fun that happens within the club.
"We have a lot of people come and go,"
Stafford said. "Some are curious and they
just want to look and listen. Others decide
to stay and play. The dulcimer is an easy
instrument to learn. Some of our members
have only been playing a year and do a
phenomenal job. But as with anything, you
get what you put in."
The music is soft and
light, and the real beauty
is playing with others. I
have learned so much here,
and I enjoy the gentle
music we make. I don't
worry about mistakes.
