About Us

The Old Town School of Folk Music's true non-profit music store houses a nationally acclaimed collection of instruments, accessories, and educational materials for musicians at any step of their journey.

From student strummers to handcrafted and professional grade gear, 100% of all purchases from the Old Town School Music Store pay for the Old Town School's life-changing group and private lessons, community outreach, and Wiggleworms children's classes. 

The Old Town School Music Store is also the drop-off point for all used instrument donations to the Old Town School, the most direct and simple way to turn your old gear into the future of the arts in Chicago. Used gear donations are welcome anytime during store hours, with all proceeds funding the Old Town School of Folk Music—exactly the same as a monetary donation, and just as genuinely appreciated!
