America's Premier Mountain Dulcimer Education Program

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.
