Days four and five of the February Piping Challenge were presented by Dan Nevans. Day four focused on dreaming big when setting your short and long term piping goals, and can be watched here on The National Piping Centre’s Facebook page.

Day five was all about learning tunes, and using the rule of three to help memorise them. The video can be found here.

Both videos are short, sharp, to the point and full of advice to help your playing.

Today’s presentation will go live at 6pm on TNPC’s Facebook page, and we hear TNPC’s Head of Piping Studies, John Mulhearn, will be talking about the D throw technique.
