About the Music School

Teaching playing skills--- and making opportunities for students to enjoy making music with others--- the Jones Family Music School in Lombard, IL has been helping people improve their lives by making their own music for over 40 years.

West Suburban Chicago's first folk music school, JFMS offers classes and private lessons in banjo, fiddle, mandolin, lap and hammered dulcimer, and autoharp--- based on the teaching principles of the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago.

As one student put it: "Thank you for inviting me into your home as part of your musical family!"  

Let us invite you, too--- explore the website from the top horizontal menu and side modules.
