This course is for anyone interested in learning to play the Great Highland Bagpipes, Drums, or becoming a Drum Major. Class topics cover a general overview of bagpipe construction, history and culture, focusing primarily on the “Great Highland Bagpipe,” as well as modern instructional progression. Students will practice on a chanter, with the goal of playing a recognizable tune by the end of the course. For students interested in the drums, they will be introduced, but not taught in this particular class. If there is enough interest, a separate class may be possible in the future.
Registration available throughout course, but register by October 18, to have a chanter in time for the first class meeting.
