Founded in 1996 by Susan Cross Gilligan, the Riley School is a community of children, teens and adults dedicated to the pursuit of Irish traditional music. Our Board of Trustees seeks to extend and enhance our community through workshops, ceili dances and other performance opportunities for our students that raise awareness of our school and what we offer.
Riley School is supported by the Ohio and Kentucky Arts Councils. Visit our Grants and Recognition page for more information.
Quarterly sessions are offered starting in September, January and March. Classes are held on Saturdays, beginning at 9:00 am. Small class sizes provide a rewarding and effective way for students to experience the history, camaraderie and joy of playing traditional Irish music.
Specific class times may be adjusted depending on enrollment and teacher availability. Please see the Schedule Page for current quarter class offerings and times.
We hold an Open House each quarter for new and prospective students.
