Tá fáilte roimh gach duine ag SLIA! Everyone is welcome at SLIA. Our children can start any time after the age of four. Adults are welcome too. We are so proud of our Irish traditions that we want to share them with everyone. You can download the 2014-2015 Registration Form here. Or just come in to school and fill one out. If you have a little one, please come to our building on any Monday during the school year after 4 p.m. Ask for Mrs Gannon. It is unusual for her not to be there, but if she is not, please ask for Eileen or Shannon.
Mrs. Gannon will show you around and let your child see what a typical class at St. Louis Irish Arts is all about.
We have classes in dance, recitation, singing, harp, concertina, piano accordion, button accordion, fiddle, mandolin, banjo, bodhrán, flute, uileann pipes and of course, tin whistle. When a young child comes through our doors, the first instrument they will learn is the tin whistle. You will get one tin whistle when you sign up for our classes. After some time on the tin whistle, your child may (with a teacher's approval) add a second instrument.
Our classes typically fun for an hour and a half to two hours. During this time, students will receive instruction in both music and dance.
Do not hesitate to contact us for any further information you may require.
Do not be shy about coming in to meet us. We welcome anyone that is interested in learning our traditions and are proud to help promote the Irish culture on this side of the Atlantic.
