Sign up to the National Youth Pipe Band of Scotland’s free music workshop, being held on Sunday, June 18 at The National Piping Centre.
This workshop brings together young music-makers in Glasgow to look at Mackay’s Memoirs by Martyn Bennett. Martyn wrote this piece originally for young people to play, and it’s a masterclass in tasteful accessible music for a large ensemble.
There’s no need to know the piece already. We’ll be working in creative ways: adding our own parts, learning the rhythms and melodies and using our listening skills. We will have written music on the day but you can also take part learning by ear.
The event is welcoming all abilities, and is open to all instruments and vocalists! For young people aged 12-18, or up to 25 if you identify as having a disability. Places are free but limited so sign up now to claim yours!
For community organisations and schools taster sessions can be arranged via email@example.com
The workshops will be lead by tutors from various genres and instrumental disciplines.
The application for will ask you to state your level of musicianship using the guide below.
