Youth classes are taking place July 11-15 and adult classes are July 12-14 at Flagstaff Arts and Leadership Academy.
Youth who register will attend 5 classes Monday-Friday. No experience is necessary and all instruments are provided. Children will learn Cape Breton Fiddle, Tin Whistle, Cape Breton Dancing, Traditional Songs of Nova Scotia and Irish Music 101.
For adults, we offer classes Tuesday-Thursday in Cape Breton Fiddle, Cape Breton Piano, Irish Flute/Whistle, Beginning Tin Whistle, Cape Breton Dance (all levels welcome), DADGAD Guitar, Tenor Banjo/Mandolin, and Traditional Songs of Nova Scotia (all levels). For those that would like to try out a class, but can’t make it during the day, we offer 2 hour workshops on Monday evening in Irish Music 101 (all levels), Cape Breton Dance (all levels), and DADGAD Guitar.
Grand Canyon Celtic Arts Academy is a wonderful opportunity to learn new art forms from the Celtic regions of the world with top-notch instructors and performers. You will come away enthused to continue your studies and with new friends!
