Old Town School of Folk Music's new East Building

One of the pioneers in the Lincoln Square neighborhood, the Old Town School has since expanded to several buildings on this stretch of Lincoln Avenue and opened other locations throughout the city. It remains the best place in town to expand your talents by learning how to play guitar, Irish stepdance, draw comics and more. Its early-childhood music class, Wiggleworms, is a rite of passage for growing up in Chicago. Plus, its music stores stock musical instruments, accesories and more.

I've taken the ukelele class, the school is great as a meeting place for local musicians with a nice and inviting atmosphere.

Terrific, intimate concert venue. The wide variety of music and dance can be found in both performance programming and in group or private lessons.
