Specialist Evening Classes
The National Piping Centre have developed three different evening class courses as part of our curriculum. These courses will begin in September 2021 as online courses, so whereever you are in the world you can sign up!
This replaces the Bellows piping course which used to run at The National Piping Centre Otago Street.
This will run in two hour slots, one from Novice players and one for Intermediate players.
The novice course will be based around the basics of playing a bellows pipe and an introduction to session tunes. The Intermidiate+ course will look more at repertoire, form and tune delivery.
These courses will be weekly on Tuesdays from 28th September 2021 - Tuesday 7th December. The Novice class will be at 6pm and the Intermediate+ course will be at 7pm, with lessons lasting 50mins.
In a brand new course, with a top whistle player, beginners novice and intermediate+ players can learn more about the craft and music of the whistle. The beginner course is for those with no experience, the Novice course is for those who can play basic scales and simple tunes, with the Intermediate+ course for those looking to work on their repertoire and delivery.
These courses will be weekly on Tuesdays from 28th September 2021 - Tuesday 7th December. The Beginner classes will be at 6pm, the Novice class will be at 7pm and the Intermediate+ course will be at 8pm, with lessons lasting 50mins.
This 10 week course will follow the NPC Piobaireachd Tutor book to introduce non piobaireachd players to this musical artform. To take part in this course you will need a copy of TNPC Piobaireachd Tutor book.
This courses will be weekly on Mondays from 27th September 2021 - Monday 6th December at 7pm each week.
These 10 week courses are £100 for each course.
We can take registrations once the course has started, however the full 10 week price will still apply. We can only take new registrations until week 2 of the new course.
The National Piping Centre requires all students to use hearing protection at all times when playing pipes. Hearing protection is available for purchase in our shop or free of charge from the earplug dispenser in both our piping school venues.
