The founders wanted the School to be a place where, as founder Frank Hamilton said, "teacher and student would be partners in learning." This philosophy is still in place and the Old Town School continues to be a place that gives people the tools to make their own music. Young and old, beginners and advanced players, people from various cultures and traditions come together to create music and learn from each other.
The Old Town School of Folk Music remains committed to teaching and presenting music that reflects the cultural traditions of Chicago's diverse communities. Operating with a five-year strategic plan implemented in 2002 and building to the 50th anniversary in 2007, the school continues to focus its resources and activities on its core values:
Education – the heart of the school as expressed through multi-level and multi-traditional curricula.
Participant Diversity – the breadth and depth of diverse traditions expressed through community programs and internalization in all Old Town School activities.
Youth Outreach – music as a birthright – expressed through early childhood and middle school on site and satellite programs.
Old Town School Experience – Ensuring the values of the school through values-driven, high quality, consistent delivery of School programs to all participants, including faculty, staff, students, board concert goers, supporters and community.
National Leadership – Expanding opportunities for the School through awareness, strategic partnerships and sharing experience and lessons learned with other cultural institutions.
Classes for Adults: Choose from hundreds of classes in music, dance, and the perfoming arts. We offer classes for every interest, inclination and skill level.
Classes for Kids: Music, Art, Dance, Theater - more fun than learning ought to be allowed to be. Registration for current classes is ongoing for Wiggleworms, Kangaroos, Scribble and Yoga.
Classes for Teens:  Anyone 13 and over can take an Adult Group Class - and we also offer a great set of classes for students aged 11 - 18: same quality, slightly more angst.
