Rob Brereton is considered one of the pioneers of contemporary dulcimer playing. Applying his degree in music theory and classical guitar to the dulcimer has allowed him to explore a side of the dulcimer experienced by few. Rob was one of the first players to arrange extensively in the now popular 1-3-5 chromatic tuning. He enjoys arranging the timeless classics of Duke Ellington, George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, and the like. In addition to teaching and playing dulcimer, Rob also directs choirs, teaches general music, and is an active composer/arranger. He has one many awards and honors for his musicianship. You can hear his "masterful and innovative" playing on his recording "Someone to Watch Over Me" available on I-tunes. Oh, and don't tell his friends, but he likes to yodel too.
