Community Programs & Events

Welcome to the Old Town School of Folk Music!

Whether you have two hours or two months to spend with us, you're invited to be a part of a vibrant community filled with people who make music, dance, and the arts a part of their lives everyday. You belong here no matter what you like, what you already know, or what you want to do!

Join us most any day of the week:

Jams are a great way to play and sing along.

The Second Half: All are welcome to join the core guitar classes each day of the week for a free, time-honored Old Town School tradition called the Second Half.

Take a workshop with visiting and faculty artists.

The Social – RSVP for a fun weekend night out on the first and third Friday of the month.

Stop by our café for a drink, snack, or meal before or after your class, workshop, or concert.

Join us for 8- or 16-week classes or private lessons in music, dance, theater, or visual arts for adults, teens, and kids.
