Mission Statement

The Friendly School of Folk Music (a non profit organization) is a musical community that strives to inspire, bring together, and develop musicians of all ages and levels through our unique instructional approach. Our beginner, intermediate and advanced classes are led by professional musicians who guide students at their own pace with attention to individual musical interests. We are a community based organization that is all inclusive, and we strive to make music affordable to all, as well as financially rewarding to our mentors. We provide an environment for all musicians to learn from one another, play together and develop their skills. We encourage our musical family to consider the Friendly School of Folk Music a home where everyone is supported and welcome. We especially encourage our youth to choose music and the arts as a recreational outlet.
