The School is aimed at introducing learners to the instruments (either piping or drumming) and the first techniques of playing. Piping will be taught on practice chanters and drumming with sticks and pads. Participants will have the opportunity to play bagpipes and drums during the weekend.

Run over Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 August at the Scout Hall, the classes will begin at 10.00am and finish at 4.00pm (timings to be confirmed) and will be taught by members of Haddington Pipe Band.
