Welcome to Frederic Chopin’s Polish school located in Syracuse, NY. Our mission is to educate and foster values that promote Polish vitality, culture, tradition, and language.

The school is situated in the Polish Community Home in the historic Polish west side of Syracuse, NY.  Lessons range from beginner to advanced and run from October to May. Lessons take place every Saturday. Registration is open all year round.
