For the music material this year Dűvő will teach material from Ördöngősfüzes and Gömör.
Music instruction on a variety of instruments will be offered each morning and afternoon. Music students should have some basic skill on the instrument being learned as classes will be geared toward learning the melodies and style of the material. For more obscure instruments, basic skills can be taught.
Dűvő has taught music at folk camps throughout Europe and are a favorite at folk festivals in Hungary. They play a vast repertoire from all ethnic groups of the Carpathian basin and Felvidék area, have earned the “Young Master of Folk Arts” in 1983, are the accompanying band for the Nógrád Dance Ensemble, and have played for many recent Western Canadian Hungarian Festivals. Dűvő has released at least 12 major recordings as well as numerous teaching recordings.

- Dénes Hrúz plays violin, duda and ütögardon
- Szabolcs Hrúz plays violin, kontra and koboz.
- Zsolt Nagy plays clarinet, kontra and furulya.
