The Boston CCE Music School is a 501c3 non-profit music school, with the express purpose of teaching and preserving Irish traditional music in the Boston area.

We have a first-class roster of teachers who are professional musicians, and who have performed all over the world.

We teach classes for adults and children on Saturday mornings (during the regular school year) at the St. Columbkille Partnership School in Brighton.  We also sponsor house parties, concerts, music workshops, and our annual Feile Cheoil, a competition and concert including local students and performers.  We teach classes on specific instruments (including harp and singing), as well as mixed group classes like Dancing for Sets and our children and teens' ensemble classes.  We also have "Guided Session" classes like our "Popular Session Tunes" classes for those who would like to get to know other musicians, and build their repertoire and confidence at playing in sessions.

The Fall 2014 schedule of classes will be posted here one week before classes begin. Please check out Frequently Asked Questions page (link at the left of your screen) to learn more!

Registration for the Fall 2014 is now closed.
