Some of the great DSNI membership benefits are:

    Discounted fees for our special guest artist led workshops

    Knowing that you are helping to spread the joy of the dulcimer

For our 2017/2018 program year, which runs from September through May, dues are only $25. The Dulcimer Society of Northern Illinois is a non-profit club with all of the work done by volunteers. Only the special guest artists receive a fee. The membership dues cover the expenses directly incurred by the club.

DSNI was formed in 1980 and provides a welcoming environment to musicians and spreads the joy of the dulcimer. This has been made possible by the work of volunteers and DSNI membership. We encourage you to join in and help to continue the dulcimer tradition.

We look forward to making music with you!

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