The National Piping Centre invites you to the 2015 P.E.I. Summerside Piping and Drumming School. We will have a daily program which will cover all aspects of performance including practice routines, technique, musical expression, tuning and ensemble playing. Students will be taught in a small group of similar ability for 3-4 hours per day with workshops, recitals and practice time built in.  

All levels of players are welcome. 



As well as daily lessons and tuition we have a range of other events on offer in the evenings:

Sunday: Student auditions followed by student and teacher reception at the College of Piping. 

Students should arrive at the College of Piping for a 4pm start.

Monday: Teaching Programme commences. 

Free night to relax, explore PEI, or of course practice!

Tuesday: PEI Lobster Supper. 

Optional excursion to Fisherman's Wharf on the North Shore of PEI will be offered, with transportation to and from North Rustico. Students and families can register and pay for the meal on Sunday at the reception.

Wednesday: Celtic Idol. 

A Celtic talent show open to the summer school students and local PEI talent as well. Performers will compete for prizes, and the commentary and judging will be provided by NPC and COP instructors. Creativity is encouraged!

Thursday: Instructor Recital. 

You have been working all week, now you can sit back and relax in the theatre and listen to the instructors put on a show.
