Grand Canyon Celtic Arts Academy is entering its 7th year! We are very excited to have Cassie and Maggie MacDonald from Halifax, Nova Scotia teaching music and dance of Cape Breton and Gordon Gower from Tucson teaching Irish music. We offer children’s classes for ages 8-15 and adult classes. There are classes for all ability levels. Children’s classes are taking place July 13-17 and adult classes are July 14-16 at Flagstaff Arts and Leadership Academy.
Children who register will attend 7 classes Monday-Friday. No experience is necessary and all instruments are provided. Children will learn Cape Breton Piano, Cape Breton Fiddle, Tin Whistle, Cape Breton Dancing, Music Mind Games, 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), and Traditional Songs of Nova Scotia. 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 as well!
