The Nonsuch Dulcimer Club aims to support young people in these ways:
- We offer a discounted rate for those in full time education at our annual weekend. Please see the booking form for rates.
- We offer a Dulcimer Education Pack for use in schools for children at key stage 2.
- We have a bursary fund ‘The Mat Fox Bursary Fund’ to support young people aged 16 – 25 to buy and learn to play an instrument.
The Mat Fox Bursary Fund
The club wants to provide a lasting and practical memorial to one of our best loved tutors, Mat Fox, who died suddenly in early 2014 at the age of 57. Mat was an excellent player of the hammered dulcimer, but above all an inspiring educator of young people. Therefore we have created a scheme to support one young person each year, aged between 16 and 25, to buy or loan a dulcimer and get good quality tuition on it (normal maximum £250).
Applications should be made by 31st December for funding in the following year 1st April to 31st March. A repeat application by a previously successful bursary holder will be considered on its merits. To download the details click Mat Fox Bursary
