Introduction to beginning Highland Bagpipe and Drumming for those (ages 12 and older) interested in learning Highland music and/or joining a pipe band. Course includes discussion and demonstration of traditional pipe band music, as well as small group instruction in playing bagpipes, snare, tenor and bass drums. The ability to read music is very helpful but not necessary. Piping students are required to provide a practice chanter and piping texts. Drumming students are required to provide a practice pad and sticks. Information on purchasing these items will be available in class, if needed.
