Student recommendations:

David is a Master at his Field. An excellent musician that was selected at the young age of 14 as the Best Dulcimer Player in an International Competition. He is an excellent teacher that takes his job to heart and has a very unique performance on the Hammered Dulcimer—my hat is off to David Mahler, musician and teacher!

David has proved to be a great teacher. He is very patient, really knows his stuff, and knows how to encourage and inspire his students. Under David’s instruction, Benjamin advanced quickly and we were soon hearing beautiful music filling our home. – Diana Fain, mother of Ben Fain – Texas State Champion – Fort Worth
