Default Re: Any Musicians?

I love music all of it.I have had some ask me what my username means,I am a dance instructor(clogging).I also play the fiddle and what I play is definately fiddling.My hubby plays the banjo(claw hammer style)We have a band and play at all the fiddlers convention in and around the area.I recently bought an Orthey autoharp and am in the process of learning to play it. I love it.
We have taught for years in the Sparta,NC school system in a program JAM (Junior Appalachian Musicians)Students grades 3-7 learn to play a stringed instrument(fiddle,banjo,guitar,mandelin and bass.All the instruments are donated by local and area musicians so any child that wants to can learn to play.I taught the group to clog until I had total knee replacment 3 years ago.These kids turn out to be super musicians and dancers.Where I live nearly everyone plays something.It's a way of life here in the Appalachian Mountains.
