The Piobaireachd Society Teachers List is published with the aim of facilitating the teaching of piobaireachd. How it works: Those struggling for a teacher email the Secretary and he puts the prospective pupil in touch with the prospective tutor. More here.
The Piobaireachd Society Bursary aims to encourage young pipers who do not have easy access to a piobaireachd teacher to learn piobaireachd. Previous successful candidates have been very positive about their experience of a week of expert tuition focusing on piobaireachd sponsored by the Society.
Successful applicants get one week of free piobaireachd tuition and help with accommodation and travel expenses if required. Candidates should be between 14 and 18 and preference will be given to those who live outside the central belt of Scotland
In the past the week of study has been delivered by the former College of Piping and then the National Piping Centre in Glasgow.
The closing date for applications is now April 30 each year. Contact the Society’s Secretary Mr Bill Wotherspoon for further information and download the application form here:
