Jazz Institute of Chicago

Old Town School of Folk Music

The Old Town School of Folk Music teaches and celebrates music and
cultural expressions rooted in the traditions of diverse American and
global communities.

As we begin our 50th year in 2007, enrollment in Old Town School
tuition programs averages close to 6,000 students per week, 2,700 of
them children. The Lincoln Square and Lincoln Park facilities hold
hundreds of classes and workshops in music, dance and art for adults,
children and teens seven days per week, 48 weeks per year. Early
childhood and middle school music programs thrive in three suburban
branches as well as in several community outreach programs throughout
the city. The School presents performances by internationally known
touring artists, the best of Chicago's local artists and its staff and
students virtually every weekend. Most Wednesday nights feature free
concerts through AfroFolk Live and La Peña, popular and long
established Community Programs. Some 85,000 come to these concerts and
attend the Chicago Folk & Roots festival in nearby Welles Park

Throughout our 50 year history, what has set the Old Town School of
Folk Music apart from other music teaching programs has been the
philosophy that music is for everyone. The founders wanted the School
to be a place where, as founder Frank Hamilton said, "teacher and
student would be partners in learning." This philosophy is still in
place and the Old Town School continues to be a place that gives people
the tools to make their own music. Young and old, beginners and
advanced players, people from various cultures and traditions come
together to create music and learn from each other.
