Evening classes return to The National Piping Centre from September 26


In-person lessons and online tuition return to The National Piping Centre from next Monday, September 26. These courses are 10 weeks long, cost £100 adults/£90 U18 and are a great way to get into piping or brush up if you have had a break.

Suitable for everyone from complete beginners to advanced pipers, these weekly classes in small groups will provide a supportive and fun learning environment.

The National Piping Centre has re-developed its evening class programme, with courses that are designed to take you from absolute beginner to proficient piper, through PDQB levels 2 – 5. There will be an opportunity to sit these exams along the way if you wish. The 10 week course costs £100 adult / £90 U18 – just £10/£9 per week!

There are nine levels of playing experience, to reflect the different stages of piping learning. This will allow you to more accurately describe your playing and allow you to be grouped more accurately.  See the booking page for the level descriptions to ensure you are joining the correct class.

The learning journey the student will embark on details all the abilities required to be a self sufficient piper. Pupils will learn how to read and write music for the bagpipe, maintain and tune their own instrument and develop a well rounded repertoire of pieces.
