Over the four days there will be group lessons, 1-2-1 tuition, Masterclass workshops and more for pipers and drummers. Each piping student will be provided with a digital music pack so everyone will have new music to learn and drummers will work closely with Gareth to hone technique.
Which level should I choose?
There are two levels available.
Starter/Beginner is a half school option for people just starting on their piping or drumming journey. They may have just bought their starter pack during lock down. This half school course is designed specifically for adults, whose experience playing is limited to playing the scale or less. This option is £80 for a half school option.
Full School option - for those who have learned more than the scale! Once registered you will be asked to submit a short video of your playing ability, so we can group you before the school starts, so you will be in a group with those of the same playing standard. This option is £160 for the full school.
