Unique. Vibrant. Growing.
Irish traditional music is for singing, for dancing, for community and for the sheer joy of it! The Center for Irish Music is a music school dedicated to teaching traditional music to the wee and the grown. Our teachers share all aspects of traditional music with you through group classes, workshops, camps and private lessons.
Together since 2004, and a 501c3 since 2008, The Center for Irish Music is more than a school, we are a community of artists dedicated to handing down traditional music and song to the next generation of musicians. We provide cultural education and context for the music. Through our activities the Center is invigorating the Twin Cities by providing access to an exciting music tradition that is rare and rich. We have made Minnesota a recognized destination for world renowned touring musicians-- and have some of those on our faculty as well. CIM is helping make Minnesota into a center for traditional music and Celtic cultural activity.
CIM is located in St. Paul, Minnesota in a thriving new arts center, the Celtic Junction! This community partner is home not only to CIM, but to Irish and Scottish dance schools, Irish language teachers and scholars, and much more.
