ABOUT THE IRISH MUSIC SCHOOL OF CHICAGO: The Irish Music School of Chicago teaches children and adults as it has been done for generations in Ireland and Irish communities around the world: as a collaboration between Irish musicians, teachers, students and the community itself. It was founded in 2003 by Chicago-bred and internationally acclaimed Irish fiddler Seán Cleland. As a young Irish-American determined to play traditional Irish music, Seán made repeated trips to Ireland. Back at home, he immersed himself in the vibrant Chicago Irish Music community, literally sitting at the feet of the mostly immigrant Irish musicians.

Recognizing the need for a school of Irish traditional music, he envisioned a place that could provide a unifying presence for Irish music in Chicago, bringing younger generations of student Irish musicians into contact with the older generation of Irish musicians.

As a not-for-profit organization, the Irish Music School is committed to maintaining the strong tradition of Irish music, song and dance, to involve more people in the community of Irish music, and ensure that this type of music does not disappear in Chicago and the United States.
