Specialist Bellows Evening Classes

January 24th, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


The next term of the Bellows evening classes will start from Tues 24th Jan –  Tues 28th March 2023. This 10 week evening class course replaces the Bellows piping course which used to run at The National Piping Centre Otago Street. This will run in two hour slots, one from Novice players and one for Intermediate players. The novice course will be based around the basics of playing a bellows pipe and an introduction to session tunes. The Intermidiate+ course will look more at repertoire, form and tune delivery.

The teacher for this course will be our Piping teacher and Youth Development Lead, Ailis Sutherland. Ailis has a first class honours degree in Applied Music from University of Highlands and Islands, where she studied at their South Uist campus. She has performaed all over the world as a solo piper and with her group Hecla, as well as appearing on radio and television.

These courses will be weekly on Tuesdays from Tues 24th – Tues 28 March 2023. The Novice class will be at 6pm and the Intermediate+ course will be at 7pm, with lessons lasting 50mins.

Previously we have run Piobaireachd 101 and Whistle evening classes. If you would be interested in these lessons, please email eveningclass@thepipingcentre.co.uk

These 10 week courses are £110 for each course.

We can take registrations once the course has started, however the full 10 week price will still apply. We can only take new registrations until week 2 of the new course.


Hearing Protection

The National Piping Centre requires all students to use hearing protection at all times when playing pipes. Hearing protection is available for purchase in our shop or free of charge from the earplug dispenser in both our piping school venues.
