Boston's Comhaltas Music School

CCÉ Boston Music School provides beginner to advanced group lessons for children, teens, and adults in

Irish Traditional music. We have a first-class roster of teachers who are professional musicians living in the Boston area, and who have performed all over the world.  We offer 2 10-week semesters in the Fall and Spring.  Instruments taught include banjo, bodhran, bouzouki, button accordion, concertina, flute, guitar, harp, mandolin, sean nos singing (in English and Irish), tinwhistle, and uilleann pipes. We also offer ensemble classes for students interested in playing and performing music together, and free teacher-led sessions for our enrolled students. Need an instrument? We do offer a range of rental instruments and have tinwhistles for sale. 

Classes take place on Saturday mornings at the St. Columbkille Partnership School in Brighton.  For more information, please check out our list of Frequently Asked QuestionsFor the latest News, check out our News and Announcements page. If you'd like to be on our mailing list for announcements, you can sign up here: Subscribe!
