Winter Weekend participants can choose from over 50 hours of instruction on the mountain dulcimer, hammered dulcimer, ukulele, banjo and guitar. Want to attend a hammered dulcimer session in the morning and a guitar class in the afternoon? No problem! Maybe you're a mountain dulcimer player who wants to learn how to get started playing the Hammer Dulcimer. No problem! Mix and match any classes you wish to attend. There will be something offered each hour for all skill levels.

Evening activities will include staff performances and a music sharing session for participants. Jim Miller will also be leading jam sessions throughout the weekend.
The best part is that all classes, concerts, jam sessions, vendor area and meals will be held inside the Hotel. So, after you check in, there is no need to leave the facility for any of the weekend's activities.

Registration: $159 per person  / $40 for Non-participant
($199 after December 9).
