Spring 2017 session is concluded, see you in the fall!   

Thanks to all for another great session, filled with new and returning students.  We welcomed Flynn Cohen to our teaching staff (to share some teaching duties with Claudine Langille), and hosted two very well attended fiddle workshops with All-Ireland fiddle champion Dylan Foley in April.  We will be putting together the fall offerings soon and will be posting about that.

And a quick note, our fiddle teacher (and Director) Jeanne Freeman is  featured in the June 2017 issue of Celtic Life International Magazine, please click here to read about it:  

Please see our Class Descriptions and Registration pages to get an idea of what we offered this past spring.      

 The joy of music lasts a lifetime!
