embracing timeless crafts in tranquil Appalachia.
Nestled in the Appalachian foothills of the Ohio River Valley in
the western part of the state, the county seat of Ripley features a
historic downtown and theater and easy access to nearby areas of
natural beauty, abundant wildlife and hiking trails.
The bowed psaltery is one of the easiest instruments
to learn. No fingering, just bowing. It's haunting and
beautiful sound is somewhat reminiscent to that of a
violin. The bowed psaltery is triangular in shape,
allowing each string to extend a little farther than
the one before it, so that each can be individually
bowed. There is no need to know music, you will
learn the basics while in class. You do not have to
bring an instrument, we will have plenty of
instruments available to borrow. Come and enjoy
learning to play a new instrument!
