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.
If you are a beginner player or seasoned performer, you should still look to protect your hearing as much as possible. This document gives more information about hearing protection for beginners.
