Registration is now open for our Fall 2021 classes, which begin in mid-September – more information is available on our Class Descriptions and Registration pages.

Sept. 8 update – we were hoping to resume classes in person, but given on-going concerns about Covid, have made the difficult but necessary decision to go back to an on-line format for our Fall 2021 classes. Thanks for your understanding.

Welcome to the Connecticut Academy of Irish Music,  which offers group instruction in traditional Irish music to children and adults on a variety of instruments (fiddle, tin whistle, flute, mandolin, banjo, guitar, and bodhran), as well as singing and mixed instrument classes.   Classes are offered by outstanding instructors for players of all levels.  We normally offer classes in the beautifully renovated historic barn in Old Wethersfield at the Wethersfield Academy for the Arts,  431 Hartford Ave., Wethersfield, CT.
