Columbia College Chicago

Sherwood is Now Part of the Department of Continuing and Community Education!

Don't worry, Sherwood Community Music School hasn't gone away, we're just expanding and have a new name! Sherwood is now a part of the larger Continuing and Community Education department at Columbia College Chicago, and we've had to make some changes to our website to reflect our new family. What are the changes?

  1. We have a new web address, Please make sure to update your bookmarks!

  2. Since our website now includes other continuing and community education programs beyond those offered directly through Sherwood, you'll notice that the name Sherwood is almost entirely absent from our website. This doesn't mean we've gone away, we're still offering the same high-quality music instruction we've been offering for over 120 years, we just need to keep things more generalized for the sake of clarity.

  3. All our email and social media communication will be coming from "Continuing and Community Education at Columbia College Chicago", rather than from "Sherwood Community Music School at Columbia College Chicago."

What's staying the same? Well, nearly everything else, just more of it, and more variety in our program offerings! Please drop us a line and let us know what you think about the changes, or if you have any questions. You can reach us any time at
