Reviews, photos and videos for program: Learn To Play The Bowed Psaltery

This was an excellent program because of the very knowledgeable and patient teacher, Tish Westman. The morning of Day #1 we knew NOTHING. The evening of Day #4 the 10 of us performed a concert of three pieces, including Amazing Grace, and got resounding applause from an audience of 100. They were so moved they called for an encore and we did Amazing Grace a second time. We all had a warm glow of personal accomplishment that night. Try this class if you have ever wanted to play music. My wife and I now have a joint hobby we can pursue for the rest of our lives. What a gift!

Our program was at Cedar Lakes in WV in late September 2013. The weather was very pleasant. Although they had rooms and a dining hall, we decided to stay in nearby Ripley, WV at the Holiday Suites. Nicer accommodations and different places to eat each night. Costs more of course but we found it made for a better vacation. It was only a 12 minute drive to the program at Cedar Lakes.

This was an excellent class. The teachers were professional and knew how to teach people at different levels. They taught us much more than expected. They were insightful and fun. I highky revommend this course. Advertising it as an opportunity to learn a folk instrument in West Va might draw more people as not many know what a bowed psaltery is. Robbye Hamburgh
