Di's message reminded me to post details of another weekly course in the opposite corner of the county!

Once again Queen Elizabeth High School in Hexham will be offering "Beginners Northumbrian Smallpipes" as part of the Community & Leisure programme. The 10 week course is aimed at those starting out on the instrument - no prevous musical experience is assumed. The course runs on Sunday evenings 7.30-9.30pm and the first session is on the 26th Sept. The venue is Wall Village Hall (just outside Hexham).

Participants will need to provide their own pipes - last year a number of people hired sets from the NPS, others discovered friends who had a set and some had had their own set for a number of years. Assistance and advice is available

The course brochure and enrolment form is available here: http://www.qehs.net/ alternatively contact the Community & Leisure programme on 01434 610322

I'm also looking at the possibility of running an improver's group in tandem with this. If you or anyone you know might be interested, please do drop me a line.
