For Both the Mountain and Hammered dulcimer      

Check our 2017-2018 Schedule for meeting dates and topics.

Join us for music and fellowship!

Here at the Dulcimer Society of Northern Illinois, aka DSNI, musicians get together once a month, eight times per year for a Sunday afternoon of playing music and socializing. Our goal is to enjoy playing music together while increasing our musical knowledge and skills. We really enjoy playing with other acoustic instruments and heartily invite all to join.

There is no prerequisite for joining. Our programs are geared so all can participate. We encourage beginners to attend as well as intermediate and advanced musicians. We offer a positive environment to learn, teach, share and explore music.

Each season we put together a schedule that includes six meetings that are member lead and have covered a wide range of topics and styles including duets, Celtic and world music. Two meetings feature workshops with mini-concerts led by professional musicians.

Your support of this non-profit, all volunteer club helps to continue the tradition of dulcimer music and we thank you for your continued support! We hope you can join us for rewarding music and fellowship, but even if your schedule doesn't permit this right now, you can help us nurture and grow the dulcimer community by sending a check for our modest dues amount. We'll keep in touch, hope to see you in the future, and keep you posted on what we're doing to keep dulcimer music alive and well in our region.

Standard music notation, mountain dulcimer tab, and chord designations are provided so all can participate.
