Since 1957, Chicago's music store with a non-profit mission. 

The Old Town School of Folk Music's full-service music store houses a nationally acclaimed collection of instruments, accessories, and educational materials for musicians at any step of their journey. From student strummers and class rentals to rare vintage and tour-ready gear, all proceeds from the Music Store support the Old Town School's mission of fostering artists and creative communities across Chicago, the US, and the world. We really love what we do.
