The music store with a non-profit mission since 1963.
Thanks for visiting! We are the Old Town School of Folk Music's full service music store, and we specialize in instruments and educational materials from all over the world. Whether you're taking your first class (inside or outside our walls), are a seasoned professional, or are a friend of the school living far away, our knowledgeable and friendly staff is ready to help you find exactly what you need to succeed. When you shop with us, you help support the school's non-profit mission serving thousands of musicians, artists and dancers all over the city. We buy, sell and trade all types of instruments. You can even donate your old working instruments to the Old Town School, and we'll find a way for them to help out our programs or find them a good home.
If you ever find yourself in Chicago, swing on by to strum some of the city's best selection of acoustic instruments, catch a concert, or take a workshop.
Order on-line and we'll ship to you for free!
