We are delighted to provide online learning and engagement experiences for everyone — from anywhere! — with online classes in music, step dance, Irish language, playwriting, and storytelling.

Building friendships and community through shared learning experiences has been core to our mission since 1972, so we are thrilled to be able to sustain our education program online. 

Please note: our music filter is currently only displaying instruction in three instruments, while there are several more courses on offer in this discipline (tin whistle, voice, mandolin, flute, guitar and multi, plus theory). Please filter by "All Classes" to see the full curriculum while we work to solve the problem!
