 the College of piping and national piping centre piping and drumming school

The College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts of Canada and the National Piping Centre from Glasgow are continuing a partnership to offer the 2nd Summerside Piping and Drumming School, a festival of piping and drumming dedicated to education and performance.  Finlay Johnston from the National Piping Centre will join the College of Piping faculty in Summerside from Saturday July 2 through Monday July 4.  In 2015 Finlay achieved the rare feat of winning both the Gold Medal and the A-Grade MSR at the Northern Meeting.

Students will receive hands-on class time per day, with a rotation of instructors through the school. Classes will be kept small so each student received appropriate attention. In addition, workshops and other events will be offered.

All registrations are taken through the National Piping Centre. Registration information and details should be available soon.  Interested parties can contact College of Piping Director of Education James MacHattie to reserve a space by emailing
