Dundee, Perth and Angus Branch is committed to continual learning and will strive to run courses for member bands as long as there is interest. We are hopefull of announcing dates and details of the outreach programme soon.

In the meantime we are delighted to tell some of our younger pipers and drummer about the 2016 RSPBA HQ Summer School.

The following course will be running from RSPBA Headquarters as part of their 2016 Big Bang Summer School in August.

For the attention of pipers and drummers aged between 10 and 25 years, who aspire to play at the highest level, this year, the RSPBA Headquarters is holding its Summer School in Glasgow Gaelic School, Berkeley Street, Glasgow from Monday 1st to Friday 5th August. The Summer School will cost £180 and will be held over five days with a focus on teaching you the important musical knowledge and skills you require to play at the next levels.

The syllabus will be based on the RSPBA's own Structured Learning Programme and the teaching team has a range of people from the top end of Pipe Band performance.

With a visit to at least one pipe band preparing for the World Championships, looking at instrument maintenance, tuning, performances and reading and writing music.
