The National Piping Centre offers Intensive courses for pipers of any age.
Intensive courses are offered over a Monday - Friday week, and you can opt for 1, 2 or 3, 50 minute lessons per day, working on specific topics that you would like to cover.
These lessons are a great way to improve your playing in a short space of time, working with a teaching team on your tunes, improving your technique and more.
To book your intensive course, please complete the online booking form and you will then be contacted by The National Piping Centre to confirm the dates as per the form or to suggest alternatives. We can also try to take into account which teachers you would like to be taught by.
The Intensive Courses are available throughout the year with a few exceptions. We cannot take a course when we have an internal or possibly an external school, during the week of Piping Live! or between Christmas and New Year.
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.
