The RSPBA Summer School 2017 - Registration

Application for entry to
the RSPBA's 2017 Summer School

Monday 31st July until Friday 4th August 2017

Following the success of our Summer Schools for the past 3 years, The Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association is pleased to announce the dates for Summer School 2017.

Summer School 2017 will take place in Glasgow Gaelic School, 147 Berkeley Street, Glasgow G3 7HP. This is a fantastic venue that we have used over the last few of years and was well liked by both tutors and students. The Summer School will run from Monday 31st July until Friday 4th August 2017.

The theme for this year's Summer School will be SPRINGBOARD. We hope that students will use the Summer School as a platform from which they will find great success in their determination to become top-level pipers and drummers. The Summer School will focus on raising standards in playing ability, increasing knowledge and improving performance in the arena.

SPRINGBOARD is aimed at both young people and adults. Last year we had a small group of interested adults who wanted to improve their playing skills. That opportunity will be available again this year.

After last year's great success with the Drum Majors course, we are delighted to announce that the 3-day course will continue in the 2017 Summer School. This will cover all aspects of Drum Majoring and will suit all levels of Drum Majors, from those aspiring to be a Drum Major, to those who are currently competing and who would like to further enhance their skills. The Drum Majors program will run from Wednesday 2nd August to Friday 4th August 2017.

The programme will be structured around the Drum Majors manual which is available to view by clicking here.

Over the next few months, regular updates will be provided to advise you of the make-up of the piping and drumming teaching teams.

Please complete the attached registration form to reserve a place for the SPRINGBOARD Summer School 2017.

If you require any further information, please contact Pat Whelan, Education Officer or Rachel Gillespie on 0141 221 5414 or email Pat Whelan or Rachel
