Subject: RE: Dulcimer for dummies
Dear Dulcimer and music lovers everywhere:

I am a combined 1st and 2nd grade teacher and I also teach music and art for 1st - 8th grade. We are a small school in Terral, Oklahoma and have limited resources. I contacted McSpadden Mountain Dulcimers in Mountain View, Arkansas and they suggested that I post a request online to help my cause. McSpadden has donated one used instrument and I am purchasing 1 cardboard kit with my own money. Can anyone help with any ideas on how to get dulcimer instruments for my classroom? I hope you can give me some ideas on how to get more or who I might contact. I have 18 at a time in class and one or two instruments will not be enough to allow adequate play time for each student. Please help if you can.

Thanks,
Kat
