Carolyn Brodginski
Therapy through music

Carolyn Brodginski first picked up a guitar at the age of 10 and found her passion. Since 2011, she has added other stringed instruments to her bag of tricks, including ukulele, mandolin, and the instrument dearest to her heart, the mountain dulcimer. In 2016 she completed a certification as a therapeutic musician, and now plays the dulcimer at the bedside for patients at St. Francis Hospital as part of the hospital’s Integrative Medicine Department. She also teaches dulcimer at workshops at the hospital, libraries, arts centers, and music festivals, and runs 2 separate monthly music gatherings for the community. Her original compositions, "Letting Go" and "Sweet Song Of The Mountains",  have appeared on the companion CD of Dulcimer Players News, a quarterly journal for dulcimer enthusiasts around the globe.
