Welcome to Louisville Folk School! We are a not-for-profit community with a mission to engage the folk music traditions of Kentuckians through education and performance, build on the rich cultural history of the bluegrass state, while creating community through the arts.
Most of our classes are scheduled for 8-weeks sessions in small groups (typically capped at 8 students) and cost $180 per session. An early-bird discount of 10% is offered prior to each session.
The curriculum is designed to encourage each student to master the skills taught at each individual class level. Folk School instructors will help guide their students as to which next class would be best for them. Students are encouraged to stay in a class until their skill level is appropriate for the next class level. It can be beneficial to take a particular class more than once to ensure a solid foundation before moving on to the next level
