Our Club

Founded in 1997, the Murphy Roche Irish Music Club (Burr Ridge, Illinois) is a non-profit organization for people of all ages and musical skill levels who perform, want to learn, or just enjoy Irish traditional music.

The club is affiliated with the international organization of Irish Musicians, Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann (pronounced "kol-tus kyol- tori air-in").

Our School

We teach traditional Irish music and singing in a fun environment with many opportunities for performing music and playing with others even early on in the learning process. Our focus is on getting students a jumpstart in playing their instrument so they can enjoy their instrument and the music. Students of classical music who just aren't having fun in a classical program find joy in music once again while playing trad music-- it's lively, social and exciting. Our students compete successfully on the world stage, many are world title holders.

News and Events

Online music lessons available.
Maybe you used to play music and are home due to COVID and have some time on your hands. Or, maybe you are someone who decided a long time ago to learn how to play an instrument but could never get around to it. Now it's time to act on that idea and become a "player" while we're all Sheltering in Place.

Private lessons available through Face Time, Skype, Google Hangouts and Zoom. We have figured out how to this very effectively. We have a good system for working online and we are cost effective at only $25 per lesson for private lessons.
