Mastering Theory in 2022

Did you miss Theory Book LIve in 2021? Good news! We're relaunching our popular theory class (225 students in 2021) in January.

It will be available for sale beginning on January 2, 2022, with classes beginning January 30, 2022. (You'll see that it lists as currently unavailable, and if you are logged in, at a price of $0. When registration actually opens on Jan 2, it will be available at the 2021 price of $240, and at a reduced price for current students who would like our support during 2022 in continuing to go through this content-rich series).

We'll present 40 (1/2 hour) classes throughout 2022 as Mary Lynn guides you step-by-step through The Complete Guide to Theory and Mapping for the Hammered Dulcimer (By Ken Kolodner with Mary Lynn  Michal)

Watch all of the pre-recorded lessons from 2021, use the extra study aids (flashcards and sloth-speed videos), get email support for your questions by Mary Lynn and Laurie, and participate in 4 live Q&A sessions during 2022. 

More info coming soon - make sure you are signed up to so you don't miss registration beginning January 2. 

Welcome new students!!! We can't wait to see you in the class, and be sure to pick up your copy of the BOOK ahead of time - it's a pre-requisite for joining the class!
