The National Piping Centre Junior Summer Gathering 2

July 8th - July 11th


Booking for the TWO Summer Junior Gatherings is now OPEN.

These four-day learning events have been designed specifically for young pipers, aged 17 and under, who have made the transition to pipes.

The remaining dates for 2024 are now confirmed as:
Summer Junior Gathering A: Mon 1st – Thu 4th July
Summer Junior Gathering B: Mon 8th – Thu 11th July

The programme will include:
•    1-2-1 lessons with National Piping Centre teachers
•    Ear-training and focus games
•    Individual practice
•    Come and Try Whistle
•    Q&As
•    Repertoire classes
•    Maintenance and technique workshops
•    Demonstrations
•    Composition
•    Music theory skills
•    Performance opportunities

These gatherings will provide exciting opportunities for young pipers to get together and have fun, as well as learn more about their instrument and the wider musical world.

If you have newly started playing a few tunes on the pipes, or have been playing all three drones for many years, we have an intensive and dynamic programme for you.
The Junior Gathering runs all day (9am-4pm) and will give you a taste of all strands of piping and access to expert teachers in each area.

Please note that our Junior Gatherings are not suitable for those on the practice chanter or goose. We recommend checking out our Weekend Piping Club and 1:1 lessons.

This gathering option costs £170 per student for the four days.

The Summer Junior Gatherings will run at our City Centre venue in McPhater Street.
