Berkeley Dulcimer Gathering ~ Online!
Quality Music Education on the Dulcimer
in the Heart of Berkeley!
About Our 2021 Gathering
The Berkeley Dulcimer Gathering is a weekend of hands-on workshops on mountain and hammer dulcimers, plus faculty concerts. Classes are aimed at all levels of players, from complete novice to advanced musicians. Local and national music educators, with many decades of teaching experience, bring their skill and knowledge for a fun and engaging gathering. Dulcimer enthusiasts have time to talk, listen, and play together, as well as be introduced to many types of instruments from builders around the country.
The Berkeley Dulcimer Gathering also funds administrative costs for the Online Youth Dulcimer Club, allowing young musicians weekly access to meet and share music with each other.
We are a member of Intersection for the Arts. Intersection for the Arts is a historic arts nonprofit that provides people working in arts and culture with fiscal sponsorship and resources to grow.
