Hello all - I've been asked by the local high school to run an evening
class for the smallpipes this Autumn.
It's all part of the Queen Elizabeth High School Community & Leisure
programme (http://www.qehs.net/) and the 10 week course will start on
Sunday 27th Sept (7.30-9.30pm).
The class is aimed at beginners and those new to the instrument; no
musical experience required other than some understanding or enthusiasm
for the pipes. The focus will be on basic control of the instrument, a
firm grounding in playing techniques and building a basic repetoire and
understanding of the music of the pipes. Participants will need to
provide their own instruments (in 'F'). A simple keyless set would be
sufficient for new starters, although a keyed set offers more scope for
The cost for the term £51.50 - for more information contact QEHS
Community & Leisure (01434 610322). The booking forms should be on their
site but it looks like they still have the summer term leaflet up.
Alternatively drop me a line if you have any questions.
