Morning Skills – Level III – Lower Intermediate with various afternoon electives

We are thrilled to have Jeff Furman back from our 2015 staff. Jeff is an award-winning mountain dulcimer player who is known for his smooth and expressive style.  His gentle, humorous, and effective teaching style has made him a highly popular instructor at numerous mountain dulcimer workshops across the country.

Although he is a multi-instrumentalist who plays many types of traditional music and has an extensive old-time repertoire, on the mountain dulcimer Jeff has a particular fondness for waltzes, lullabies, and Celtic airs…the softer and expressive side of the dulcimer!

He has been performing for more than 30 years, and his quick ear, technical abilities, and musical sensitivity have made Jeff a popular choice for playing on multiple recordings, including music from Ireland, Scotland, the Appalachian Mountains, and American folk tunes.  Jeff describes himself as a musician with a day job.
