The Berkeley Dulcimer Gathering is for anyone interested in playing the mountain dulcimer. This American folk instrument is enjoyed by beginner and master alike, easily accessible to new players and adaptable to all genres of music. Young and old can play a tune right away!
At the Berkeley Dulcimer Gathering you choose 3 out of 12 classes taught by 5 teachers, with subjects including repertoire, dulcimer history, and technique. As the finale, everyone plays in the Grand Dulcimer Orchestra. The day is planned for maximum time in community with about 50 mountain dulcimer aficionados. Some dulcimers will be available for loaners and to purchase. And all the instructors will have CDs, books & other products you can’t live without!
