Financial Aid

Lesson Scholarships are available through the generous donations by our friends at Patreon.

Scholarships are awarded annually. After one year, recipients must re-apply.

Applicants must submit a brief essay (MAX 500 words) about why mountain dulcimer lessons are important to them.


If awarded, this essay may be shared with the supporters of Erin's Patreon Campaign. A photograph of the student with their dulcimer is also requested, but not required.


Scholarship funds will be distributed based on need and availability. Students may receive no more than $40/week, which covers a one-hour lesson.


Scholarship recipients will be asked to write annual “Thank You” cards to up to six patrons who fund the scholarships.


Erin Mae’s standard teaching policies apply to all scholarship students. Those policies can be found


Submissions can be emailed to
