Young Stars Schools
The Young Stars 4 day piping schools are specifically targeted towards young pipers aged 16 and under.
The dates for these schools in 2017 are:
Spring School: Monday 10th – Thursday 13th April 2017
Summer School: Monday 24th – Thursday 27th July 2017
Autumn School: Monday 16th – Thursday 19th October 2017
Autumn School - Beginners - This option is now sold out. Please dont book the Beginners Half Week Course, as we wont be able to accommodate you.
These schools will include
- Group lessons
- Small practice groups
- Tuition time
All of this will be tailored for young learners. It will be a great opportunity for young pipers to get together and have fun as well as learning more about the instrument. We wanted to create a place where they can develop their piping, with some exciting music to learn and meet other young pipers from across the country.
The schools will run daily from 9am – 4.50pm and costs £160 per place for 4 days tuition.
There will be a music pack provided for each school.

Young Stars Beginners
If you have always wanted to learn the pipes, then begin your journey with us.
This half week course is designed specifically for young learners aged 16 and under, whose experience playing is limited to playing the scale or less.
Taking place during the Young Stars Piping Schools, this course starts at 1.30pm each day. You will receive 2 lessons per day, as well as join in with the recital or workshop, giving you the chance to meet other young players.
This is an example of the format for the timetable and you can see BEG marked.
At The National Piping Centre, we teach from our Highland Tutor Book I, which is available to purchase through our registration form here, and you will save £5 on RRP. If you need to purchase a chanter, there is also an option to purchase our starter pack, which contains the Tutor Book and a Chanter, which also has £5 off RRP.
This school costs £80 for the half week option.
