It was love at first sound for George
when he heard the Mountain Dulcimer and the Hammer Dulcimer back in
1998. Although an accountant by profession, he is a Folk musician at
heart and has been playing acoustic folk music on these two
instruments ever since.
George has taught hammer dulcimer in group and individual settings
for several years. His former students range in age from nine years
to, well, somewhat older than nine! He succeeded his teacher and
mentor, Jeanne Page, as the instructor for the Introduction to
Hammered Dulcimer course offered through UNM’s Division of
Continuing Education. George also was a student of and performed
with the late Michael Carlson, master instructor of the Mountain
George has been a member in a number of acoustic folk ensembles that
have performed publicly in many venues from Albuquerque to Jemez
Springs. He currently performs in Doublin’ with good friend and
Celtic harper extraordinaire Kathy Mille Wimmer.
He is available for instruction at Apple Mountain Music and you may
reach him by telephone at (505) 897-0189 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
