North of Scotland Outreach

Following on from a successful tour in 2010 the National Youth Pipe Band of Scotland will be once again bringing its young members to the north of Scotland to conduct its outreach programme for 2014. The programme will see NYPBoS Senior Band members help teach and collaborate with other young pipers and drummers in the region by conducting a workshop and evening performance. It should be a fantastic opportunity for local pipers and drummers to meet other young musicians from around the country.
Please see below for more information on each workshop and evening performance.

Registration will close 19th of September 5pm and is only for young pipers and drummers aged between 12 and 25.

Workshop

Thurso
Date: Saturday 4th October 2014
Venue: Thurso High School, Ormlie Rd, Thurso, Highland KW14 7DS
Time: 10am – 4pm

What to bring

Pipers are recommended to bring along their practice chanter and bagpipes. If you do not have a full set of pipes at the moment that is fine as long as you have a practice chanter. We will provide music packs for the day but please feel free as well to bring along your own music to reference or if you would like any help with.

Drummers are recommended to bring along their own snare, tenor or bass sticks and practice pads. If you are able to bring a drum along as well that would be great as we will only have a limited number of drums with us on tour.

All attendees are asked to bring with them a packed lunch to have at lunch time for both workshops.
