An Education opportunity for our Branch bands! Our Branch is to run a course for the benefit of Pipe Band Leaders/Tutors and Drum Majors at The Gordon Schools, Huntly on Sat/Sun - 29 & 30th October. Organised by our Music Board representatives, we will have RSPBA approved instructors running the sessions. The cost will be heavily subsidised by the Branch and the course registration fee of £50 returned to those who complete the two day event. The course is primarily aimed at helping Novice Juvenile, Grade 4 and 3 bands improve their performance but is not limited to competing bands. There will be significant benefits to be gained for anybody involved in leading their band as sessions can be varied to meet particular needs and can cater for all levels of ability. The same applies to Drum Majors as there is a wide and varied program for them too. The complete summary is as per the document ‘Pipe Band Leaders Programme’ which is being sent out to band Secretaries along with all relevant documentation. The full package is downloadable below. Hopefully many will welcome the opportunity and register for the event!
