Larry & Elaine Conger from Paris, TN are our program directors and hosts.
Welcome to America's Premier Mountain Dulcimer Education program!
Dulcimer Winter Weekend 2015 - January 8-11
Dulcimer U Summer Week 2015 - July 19-24
Dulcimer U continues its long-standing tradition of giving students the absolute best educational experience available for the mountain dulcimer. Unlike many festivals around the country, Dulcimer U is not about the performers, it’s about you….the student.
Through our expanding offerings, we will provide only a first class instructional staff, many of which have earned advanced degrees in their various educational fields. Their experience as both classroom instructors as well as nationally sought after performers make them the very best at what they do.
Skill building will continue to be at the core of our programs, but we’ll also be focusing on music theory, techniques, history and even technology applications for the dulcimer. Universities are known for advancing the body of knowledge in a particular field, so we’ll also be focusing on innovation and what the future holds for this versatile instrument.
The folks in the Continuing Education Office at Western Carolina look forward to seeing you at a Dulicmer U class in the near future. Be sure to check our website often and keep your address updated to find out what new opportunities are coming your way.
