The musical program will be headed by our Chief Instructor from Dunblane, Scotland, well known and admired throughout Scotland and the Pacific Northwest. Piping and drumming classes with run throughout the week with dedicated instructors for each class. Pipers will also receive regular tuition from our Chief Instructor. Full time classes will run throughout the day. There are also workshops, mini pipe band practices, and music sessions in the evenings, to complement the students’ hard work and the instruction received during the day classes.
All facets of piping and drumming will be on the course agenda, including musical fundamentals, instrument maintenance, pipe band skills, and most importantly, having fun playing our great music.
