Sines recommends that players start on a cardboard dulcimer at first, then buy a wooden instrument.


Sines feels that the dulcimer is easier to play than guitar because she said the hand is placed in a more natural-feeling position, similar to typing on a keyboard or playing the piano. She added that she welcomes new dulcimer students.
